Our client was alleged to have crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic striking another vehicle and causing it to flip. The driver of the other vehicle was killed in the accident. A blood test shortly after the accident indicated our client had a 0.18 BAC and tested positive for both cocaine and marihuana. Among other offenses, she was charged with Manslaughter in the 2nd Degree and Criminally Negligent Homicide. The maximum period of incarceration for her original charges was 8 1/3 to 25 years in state prison.
