Sept. 27, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced today that Carla Scott (DOB 05/10/80) of 20 N. 8th Avenue, Mount Vernon, NY, was sentenced to twenty-five years in state prison after a jury found her guilty on July 25, 2016 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. Ms. Pinto sustained 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 the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The defendant was remanded into the custody of the New York State Department of Corrections.

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