BUTTE - A Butte man says he is guilty of causing a fatal car crash on Harrison Avenue in Butte.
James Hollingsworth Jr., 67, previously pleaded not guilty, but today changed his plea to guilty on a felony charge of negligent homicide.
Last August, Hollingsworth was headed southbound on Harrison Avenue when the crash occurred. He told the court he probably wasn't paying enough attention, ran a red light and crashed into a vehicle, killing another man.
Hollingsworth could face up to 20 years in prison.
Hollingsworth's attorney asked that he be pre-screened for the Butte pre-release center as part of a pre-sentence investigation.
