Pedro Leyva Terrero, the man jailed for DUI manslaughter for the May 2011 death of Suwannee County Sheriff’s Cpl. Gary Edwards, is set to plead guilty today in a Suwannee County courtroom, court officials say.
The announcement came late Wednesday.
Edwards, 43, was killed after being forced off SR 51 by Terrero late evening on May 21 in Live Oak. Edwards was life flighted to a Gainesville hospital where he was later placed on life support. Edwards died at 10:23 a.m. Sunday, May 22 at the hospital.
Edwards was a corporal with the SCSO and a school resource officer at Suwannee Middle School in Live Oak.
He was not on duty at the time of the crash.
