Police have arrested Aramis Segura, 30, of Charlestown, in the death of Olivia Passaretti early Jan. 1 in an accident on Route 95 in Warwick. According to police, Segura was driving the Mercedes that veered into Passaretti’s lane, sending her car off the road and into a tree. He then fled on foot. Police arrested him at his home.
Segura was arraigned at State Police headquarters before a justice of the peace, charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death; driving to endanger resulting in death; obstructing justice; and driving with a suspended license. Bail was set at $10,000 surety but because he had violated probation on a previous charge (breaking and entering), Segura is being held at the Adult Correctional Institutions.
Passaretti, 17, was a junior at East Greenwich High School. School officials are offering support for students and staff starting today.
So if he didn’t have an outstanding charge he could have had bail for this outrageous death for $10K? Am I understanding this incorrectly. Very sad for family and friends of this young girl mostly but I also feel this was a failure of the legal system.
Something is wrong with Rhode Island and the legal system. We need judges that do not let this these lifetime unlawful people out on our streets. So sorry for the family…put this creep away and throw the key away
I am deeply saddened with the loss of 17 year old Olivia in my town. I can’t say I am surprised that this offender was not locked up at the ACI. The current administration of Attorney General Peter Neronha does not fight for victims! They often take the easy way out and turn their heads. This offender should NEVER have been behind the wheel of a car or walking the streets! He is a criminal! Neronha will attempt to talk his way out of this one because that’s what he does! He promised to fight for the people but he falls seriously short. The voters of Rhode Island needs to hold him accountable! No crystal ball was needed on this case to predict the future on this offender. This comment was a cop out.
Prayers for the family for healing. Prayers for my town.
