Addison Paige Clark

Addison Paige Clark, 30, pleaded guilty today in Muskogee County District Court to manslaughter, DUI, transporting an open container, failure to yield, failure to carry insurance and driving with license suspended stemming from a June 2019 incident where her car slammed into a motorcycle driven by Joshua Ray Jackson on North York Street.

She told police at the time that she was attempting to go to a bar, but she was already drunk at the time. While trying to turn, she slammed into Jackson’s Harley-Davidson and killed him. Jackson’s passenger was also critically injured in the wreck.

Clark’s blind plea means she will receive and serve whatever sentence the judge pronounces without any deal from prosecutors. A pre-sentencing investigation has been ordered by Judge Josh King in Cherokee County, and she will be sentenced on July 24 at 1:30 p.m.
