Robert Bergeson enters change of plea to vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence in the 14th and H Arcata traffic collision

Robert Bergeson was expected to enter a change of plea on December 5; that was rescheduled to January 11.

Count 1 guilty plea. Counts 2 and 3 dismissed by the People. Deputy DA Brent Kling. He stated due to PC 664, most likely those two counts would not result in additional sentencing.

A clean shaven, remorseful Bergeson softly answered Judge John Feeney's questions. Judge Feeney said he would accept the plea because Bergeson had no prior criminal record and had expressed remorse.

He is charged with three felonies. Count 1 Vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence; Count 2 Driving under the Influence of an Alcoholic Beverage causing injury; and Count 3 Driving with a 0.08% blood alcohol content causing injury. In the complaint filed, Bergeson's blood alcohol level is alleged to be 0.16%

Sentencing is February 22 at 8:30 p.m. to allow additional victims to testify and for Bergeson's attorney, Deputy Public Defender Heidi Holmquist to file a statement of mitigation.
