Plea deal in fatal boat crash on Country Pond in Kingston would allow six-month jail term

The jail sentence would be for causing the death of Erick Eskeland, who was piloting his Sea Ray boat with his family aboard before it was struck by Buswell’s boat around 11:30 p.m., the agreement says.
Prosecutors agreed to the plea deal after Judge N. William Delker ruled in their favor regarding evidence challenged in the case.
Buswell had argued that he was in police custody when he was being questioned at his family’s waterfront home. The family owns a campground around the pond.
Buswell told investigators that he was delivering newspapers and did not see Eskeland’s boat when his boat collided with it, according to court testimony.
Trial in the sexual assault case is scheduled for July 28. His plea and sentencing in the boating case is expected on Aug. 14.
