Federal Way man changes plea to guilty in fatal DUI crash
A Federal Way man who initially pleaded innocent to vehicular homicide charges in a crash that killed a man last December changed his plea to guilty Friday morning.
Jeffrey Lowell Waterfall, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of vehicular homicide at the Maleng Regional Justice Center (MRJC) in Kent. His sentencing is set for 1 p.m. April 25 before Judge Amini in room 4H at the MRJC.
Waterfall was charged with vehicular homicide after he drove his Ford Mustang into a power pole on Dec. 23, 2013 in the 28900 block of Redondo Way South. The crash killed 52-year-old Kurtis D. Nevin, of Tacoma, who was a passenger in Waterfall’s vehicle. Nevin died at the scene.
Blood testing showed Waterfall had a blood-alcohol content of .232, according to charging documents.
He is in the SCORE jail on a $600,000 bond and has a prior DUI conviction in 1979.
