Specyalski claims that Esposito was driving, and she was performing oral sex on him at the time, said her attorney, Jeremiah Donovan. He noted that Esposito’s pants were down when he was thrown from the car. Assistant State’s Attorney Maureen Platt said the defense is flawed. “His pants could have been down because he was mooning a car he was drag racing,” Platt said. “His pants could have been down because he was urinating out of a window. His pants could have been down because he wasn’t feeling well.”
Heather Specyalski has been charged with causing the death of Neil Esposito, in 1999, when the car they were in swerved off the road and crashed into some trees. Prosecutors allege that Specyalski was driving Esposito’s Mercedes-Benz convertible when the accident occurred but, according to a CNN.com report, she says she was otherwise engaged.
