Ga. woman convicted in church bus crash in Dothan

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A Georgia woman has been convicted of criminally negligent homicide for a deadly wreck in Dothan that left her 11-year-old son dead.

Crystal Finnegan lost control on wet pavement and crashed into church bus from Lexington, Ky. on June 29, 2008. Her son Rippen was killed in the crash, and another son and a passenger on the bus were seriously injured.

Prosecutors say Finnegan was driving recklessly before the accident, but her attorneys say she was negligent.

Finnegan was returning home to Columbus, Ga., from Pensacola, Fla.
