Grand Jury Indicts Covington Woman On Traffic Violations In Motorcycle Death

COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery announces that a St. Tammany Parish grand jury decided Wednesday (April 17) to indict Jennifer P. Robinson on three traffic violations—careless operation of a vehicle, making an improper turn, and no seatbelt—in an car accident that resulted in the death of an off-duty police officer last year.
The grand jury decided the evidence did not support a negligent homicide charge.

Robinson, 53, of Covington, was making a left turn into a private driveway on Louisiana Highway 1082 (Old Military Road) from the northbound lane on Aug. 25, 2018, when she collided with a motorcycle traveling in the southbound lane. The driver of the motorcycle was Ricardo Silva, Jr., 26, a New Orleans police officer, who died from injuries he sustained in the accident.
