A man who ran over and killed a Burbank woman outside a local radio
station last year pleaded no contest Monday to gross vehicular
manslaughter while intoxicated.
Cameron Duty, a 24-year-old Sylmar resident, entered his plea
before his trial was set to begin in Pasadena Superior Court. He was
also charged with leaving the scene of an accident, Deputy Dist. Atty
Shelly Torrealba said. His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 3.
“He is expected to be sentenced for 18 years,” Torrealba said.
“And it’s a violent felony, so he will have to serve 85% of his time
in a state prison.”
Duty was charged with the Sept. 9, 2002, death of Anna White, 21,
when he backed his Ford F-150 truck onto a sidewalk and into a crowd
of Justin Timberlake fans outside KIIS-FM’s (102.7) studio near Avon
Street and Warner Boulevard.
White, who was among many hoping to catch a glimpse of the pop
singer, was pinned under the truck and dragged 200 feet as Duty drove
away, police said. She was pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph
Police arrested Duty a few hundred feet from the incident.
Timberlake later announced he would lend his name to promote
national awareness against drunken driving and would write and
produce a 30-second radio spot encouraging fans not to drink and
