Man requests parole in DUI case where UNLV student was killed

Local News

Vladimir Lagerev had a parole hearing Thursday morning for the 2009 DUI crash that killed 18-year-old UNLV student Lindsay Bennett. 

This is his second parole hearing. He began serving an eight to 20-year sentence in Jan. 2011. He is now 55-years-old and says he wants to reconnect with his 10-year-old daughter.

He told the board he made a terrible mistake and asked the family for forgiveness.

It takes four of the seven commissioners to grant or deny parole. A final vote is expected in the next two or three weeks.

If granted, Lagerev could be out in May.

He’s serving his sentence at Casa Grande Transitional Housing
