Prison time for New Franklin woman


Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh announced that Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Paul Gallagher sentenced Natasha Boggs, 25, of Weaver Road in New Franklin, to six years in prison for a deadly crash that killed two teens and left a third seriously injured.


Boggs pled guilty March 30 to the following charges:

Two Counts of Involuntary Manslaughter – felonies of the third degree.
Vehicular Assault – a felony of the fourth degree.
Attempted Tampering with Evidence – a felony of the fourth degree.


“This Defendant cost two very young people their lives and seriously injured a third. I hope this sentence brings some solace to the families for this horrific tragedy,” said Prosecutor Walsh.


Boggs was driving on South Main Street in Coventry Township, May 28, 2017, when she drove outside of the marked lane of the road, over a curb onto the grass striking three teens. 13-year-old Taylor Galloway of Akron, and 13-year-old Amber Thoma of Coventry Township, died. A 14-year-old was hospitalized with serious injuries.

A rescue group needs help finding who abandoned 21 kittens and a very pregnant female cat, all crammed into one crate, late Thursday night.

“Thank goodness someone came by the building today,” said Sarah Helton, founder of Pitties and Kitties rescue located in Canton, Ohio. “All of our animals are fostered in homes and not kept at the office location so we are not there every day.”

Several of the kittens are in serious need of medical treatment. This has put an extreme burden on the rescue, which took in a paralyzed kitten and an emaciated dog with severe skin and other health issues. All foster homes were full and existing medical expenses mounting. Of course, the person or people who left the kittens left no information about the kittens or a much-needed donation to help with the added expenses.

The rescue is collecting security footage from surrounding businesses hoping to find a clue as to who abandoned these kittens. If you have any information about who abandoned these kittens please contact 234-738-2259.

You can help in the care for these kittens by sending a donation to Pitties and Kitties or by volunteering to foster one or more of these kittens for the organization. For more information visit www.pittiesandkittiesoh.org.
