ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A man has pleaded guilty in connection to a deadly drunk driving crash in Rochester last year.
Justin Seabon pleaded guilty Monday to DWI and aggravated vehicular homicide in connection to the death of 83-year-old Milton Harris.
It was an emotional scene in court Monday as Seabon was seen hugging family members of Harris. Seabon was heard saying “I lost control. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I can’t rewind it. I tried to rewind it. I can’t sleep at night. I’m so sorry, I’m sorry.”
Seabon apologized multiple times to Clarence Harris – who forgave him because he said it is the right thing and the only thing to do.
“Reality is that people are hurting,” said Bishop Clarence B. Harris, “and they’re hurting because of the pain and suffering of this world and the pain for the loss of relatives, family dynamics, COVID, whatever it may be. However we should not turn that hurt into pain for others. For those who cause pain but also give ourselves confidence for someone else and retract the damage that has been done to our family. Our family has been brutally damaged. “
Rochester police officials said officers responded to a crash on Genesee Park Boulevard around 5:15 p.m. On May 10, 2021.
According to investigators, Seabon crashed into a parked vehicle that harris was in, and then that car crashed into two other parked vehicles.
Authorities say Harris was transported to an area hospital where he later died.
According to police, Seabon does have a prior misdemeanor DWI conviction out of Williamson that occurred on Aug. 20, 2015.
