Driver in Shawano County crash that killed 3 pleads no contest
SHAWANO, Wis. — A man charged in a Shawano County crash that killed three teens in 2014 has pleaded no contest to charges in an agreement with prosecutors.
Ryan Swadner, 20, entered the plea to three counts of homicide while under the influence of a controlled substance and one count of causing injury while under the influence.
WLUK -TV reports several charges, including reckless homicide and drug counts, were dropped as part of the deal.
Prosecutors say a vehicle driven by Swadner collided with an SUV in Bell Plaine in October 2014, killing 15-year-old Paige Brunette, 17-year-old Cody Borsche and 18-year-old Tyler Welch.
