Woman Convicted in Deadly Crash Granted Early Prison Release
LANCASTER (Tara Morgan) -- A woman convicted in a deadly crash will be a free woman after being granted an early release from prison.
Caitlin DeMastry is expected to walk out of the Fairfield County jail Wednesday following a judicial release.
DeMastry served time for tampering with evidence in the February 2009 crash that killed Charles Cain, Junior.
DeMastry was accused of driving drunk when she struck Cain as he walked on Sheridan Drive in Lancaster.
She was originally convicted of involuntary manslaughter and evidence tampering and sentenced to eight years.
But the involuntary manslaughter charge was overturned on appeal.
"I don't hate her I forgive her but I think she should have stayed," said Cain's grandmother Rilla Cain.
Rilla Cain says her grandson was a young father who had a life planned with his baby girl and fiancee.
"I think the system did fail our family yes because she's out again," said Rilla Cain.
DeMastry will be on five years probation and will be monitored by GPS and a device that can tell if she's been drinking alcohol.
