Deshazor Everett Pleads Guilty In Car Crash That Killed His Girlfriend

Deshazor Everett has pleaded guilty in his fatal car crash case, according to Loudoun General District Court records.

The former Washington Commanders player pleaded guilty to reckless driving after a 2021 crash left his girlfriend Olivia Peters dead, according to TMZ.

He now faces up to a year behind bars, according to the same report. Initially, Everett had been charged with felony involuntary manslaughter.

Everett was allegedly traveling at least 90 miles per hour in his vehicle driving in Virginia with Peters when the car crashed.

He hasn’t played a snap of NFL football or been on a roster since he was arrested for the crash.

The question now is whether or not a team will take a shot on Everett with the criminal case behind him. It’s only a misdemeanor charge.

That means he could end up not get any time behind bars. At worst, he’ll get a year. However, it’s pretty rare to see a guy get the maximum on a misdemeanor.

  1. If he was a quarterback I would say yes, he would already be signed. There are plenty of DBs out there.
    So you can drive 90 mph, kill someone, plead guilty to a misdemeanor and most likely not get any jail time? Unbelievable.
