Former 'Talent' judge Brandy Norwood won't be charged in fatal crash

UPI News Service, 12/28/2007 

The Los Angeles City Attorney has decided not to file vehicular manslaughter charges against singer Brandy Norwood in connection with a 2006 car crash.

Norwood crashed her Land Rover into the back of a Honda driven by Awatef Aboudihaj, whose car then collided with a third vehicle before it was struck by a fourth motorist.

Aboudihaj, 38, subsequently died from injuries sustained in the crash.

"The City Attorney's Office has decided not to file misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charges against Brandy Norwood in the case stemming from a Dec. 30, 2006, traffic collision," Frank Mateljan, a representative for the city attorney's office, told

"After conducting a thorough investigation, which included consulting with some of the top accident reconstruction experts in the country, city prosecutors concluded that there was insufficient evidence from which a jury could find Ms. Norwood guilty of such a charge beyond a reasonable doubt."

Although she will not be charged with any crime, Norwood still faces four wrongful-death lawsuits filed on behalf of Aboudihaj's family and another victim of the crash.

A trial date is set for Jan. 28, said.
