Carly Rousso's Curfew Lifted for December Travel
The 18-year-old Highland Park woman who has pleaded not guilty to the car crash that killed a 5-year-old girl will be able to travel to Arizona later this month to spend time with her grandmother.
Rousso is the 18-year-old Highland Park resident who crashed her car into a family on Labor Day,killing 5-year-old Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento, according to Highland Park Police. She pleaded not guilty to charges of reckless homicide and aggravated driving under the influence in October.
Toxicology reports indicate that the compound Difluoroethane was detected in Rousso's blood, according to a grand jury indictment. The compound was found in a commercial cleaning product uncovered in Rousso's car, according to Ken LaRue, the Lake County State's Attorney's Traffic Division chief.
Rousso was placed on the 24-hour curfew after her family posted 10 percent of her $500,000 bond, according to Highland Park News.
The Santos family has also filed a civil suit against Rousso to seek damages.
