July 25, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced today that Carla Scott (DOB 05/10/80) of 20 N. 8th Ave., Mount Vernon, NY, was found guilty after a jury trial of:

  • one count of Manslaughter in the First Degree, a class “B” Felony,
  • one count of Leaving the Scene of an Accident which results in Death, a class “D” Felony,

relating to the death of Glynis Pinto.

On April 18, 2015 at approximately 5:27 p.m., the defendant, who was parked at the corner of Warburton and Babcock Avenues in Yonkers, drove her 2009 Mercedes Benz auto striking the victim, Glynis Pinto, who was standing in front of her car. 

As a result, Ms. Pinto was launched onto the car's hood. The defendant continued to drive with Ms. Pinto hanging onto the hood for about 30 yards, until Ms. Pinto was thrust backwards onto the road, and both wheels on the right side of the vehicle ran over her resulting in Ms. Pinto sustaining multiple fractures and internal injuries causing her death.

The defendant fled the scene.

The defendant was arrested on April 22, 2015 after a joint effort by the Westchester County District Attorney’s office, the Yonkers Police Department and FBI developed information regarding the defendant’s whereabouts.

The defendant’s remand was continued.

The defendant will be sentenced on Sept. 27, 2016.

She faces a maximum sentence of twenty-five years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Michelle Lopez and Assistant District Attorney Kerrie Williams of the Superior Court Trial Bureau are prosecuting the case.
