Singer Brandy won't face charges

December 29, 2007|From the Associated Press

Grammy-winning singer-actress Brandy will not face criminal charges for a deadly freeway crash last year, the city attorney's office said Friday.

Prosecutors decided there was "insufficient evidence" for a jury to find Brandy Norwood guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of vehicular manslaughter, spokesman Nick Velasquez said.

The decision runs counter to a recommendation from the California Highway Patrol that Brandy be charged in the crash last Dec. 30.

The accident killed Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, of Los Angeles.
