The district attorney on Cape Cod says a man involved in a deadly weekend crash should not have been released following an earlier drunken driving arrest.
The Boston Globe reports Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said an unidentified prosecutor should not have released Mickey Rivera on personal recognizance following his arrest for operating under the influence in Hyannis earlier this year.
At the time, Rivera was out on bail from charges related to a fatal 2015 shooting. O’Keefe said the prosecutor could have asked for bail to be revoked.
Rivera, 22, was killed Saturday after the Toyota he was driving slammed head-on into a GMC SUV driven by Kevin Quinn, a U.S. Marine veteran and new father who was returning from the hospital after visiting his wife and newborn daughter. Quinn died at South Shore Hospital shortly after the crash. Rivera’s passenger, 24-year-old Jocelyn Goyette, died from her injuries on Monday afternoon, her family told NBC10 Boston.
