A teenager has pleaded no contest in a Fond du Lac County crash that killed three of her friends

WLUK-TV reports 18-year-old Carly Ottery of Campbellsport entered her plea Friday.

Ottery was charged with three counts of homicide by negligent use of a vehicle.

Nine girls -- all students at Campbellsport High School -- were in the sport utility vehicle Ottery was driving last February. Fifteen-year-old Sabrina Stahl, 16-year-old Katie Berg and 17-year-old Caitlin Scannell were killed.

Special prosecutor Christian Gossett says both sides reached a plea deal and he will ask the judge for five years probation.
Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 5.

Prosecutors have filed a juvenile delinquency petition against a 16-year-old Campbellsport boy they say shot a 7-year-old girl with an arrow. Sheriff Mick Fink says the boy told investigators he was shooting at squirrels when the girl was struck while playing outside her home May 21.

The teen was arrested last Thursday night, about 10 days after Aryanna Schneeberg was shot while walking down East Main Street.
Surgeons at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin removed the arrow embedded in the back of Schneeberg and repaired damage to liver, lung, diaphragm and spleen. She has since been released from the hospital.

A 17-year-old boy is also suspected of being involved in the shooting. The teens told police they were shooting at squirrels in a tree when Schneeberg was accidentally shot.

According to WLUK-TV, Fond du Lac County District Attorney Dan Kaminski says he asked that the boy be tried in adult court. No date has been set for a judge to decide.
