In July, former Washington Commander safety Deshazor Everett plead guilty to misdemeanor reckless driving in the collision that resulted in the death of his girlfriend, Olivia Peters– a native of Montgomery County (Rockville) and 2010 graduate of Good Counsel in Olney. Everett was sentenced on Thursday in Loudoun County General District Court. He was given 12 months of house arrest, with nine months suspended. Everett also had his driver license suspended for six months.
The crash occurred on December 23, 2021 on Gum Spring Road near Ticonderoga Road in Loudoun County, VA. According to the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office, Everett was driving his 2010 Nissan GT-R more well above the speed limit at the time of the incident. Peters was taken to StoneSprings Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, evidence was presented during sentencing that data from his car’s black box led Loudoun officials to estimate Everett was driving between 65-69 miles an hour and that he did not have drugs or alcohol in his system.
Everett is a former special teams captain and backup safety for Washington, where he played for 7 seasons prior to his release from the team in March. He was treated for serious injuries and released from the hospital four days after the crash. Two teammates, linebacker Jamin Davis and cornerback Benjamin St-Juste, were in a car behind Everett after the group had gone out to dinner.
