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

Medical Center.

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

drive.
