Florida never ceases to shock. Do you agree with this punishment?
Daily Mail – A South Florida woman who tweeted about being drunk minutes before a fatal wrong-way crash that killed two 21-year-old women was sentenced Monday to 24 years in prison.
A judge also said 22-year-old Kayla Mendoza will remain on probation for six years after her release.
Mendoza pleaded guilty in February to two DUI manslaughter charges in the November 2013 crash that killed best friends Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio.
Prior to the sentencing, Mendoza tearfully read a letter to the families of Kaitlyn and Marisa.
‘This all may be my fault, but at the end of the day, I’m a human being just like everyone else,’ Mendoza said. ‘I have a heart, and it aches everyday. The guilt is overwhelming. I want to speak about this accident with everyone so that I can prevent this from ever happening again.’
Evidence showed that Mendoza tweeted out ‘2 drunk 2 care’ before the Sawgrass Expressway accident.
