California teen who livestreamed crash that killed her sister sentenced to jail

California teen who livestreamed crash that killed her sister sentenced to jail

Obdulia Sanchez, the teen who live-streamed the vehicle crash that killed her 14-year-old sister, was sentenced to six years and four months in prison on Thursday.

Obdulia Sanchez, 19, of Stockton was sentenced Thursday for gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment stemming from the death of her 14-year-old sister during the July crash.

The auto she was driving veered onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos, about 160 kilometres south of San Francisco, with authorities saying she overcorrected causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn, ejecting and killing her 14-year-old sister.

Last year, Sanchez admitted that this was not the first time she livestreamed herself behind the wheel, saying she did it "all the time".

Sanchez then proceeded to livestream the accident as her sister, who died at the scene, laid on the ground with a bloodied face. "I know I'm going to prison, but I don't care".

They claimed that besides alcohol, her blood tested positive for marijuana and cocaine. "Why did God choose me to be the older sister".

Another passenger, a 15-year-old girl, was injured in the crash, but survived.

"I f-- killed my sister, okay?" I'm going to hold it down. I was stupid, immature and irresponsible'.

"We do it all the time - all the time", she said. "She killed her sister, but she didn't care, that's one reasonable interpretation", prosecutor Thomas Min said.

In an interview from jail prior to her conviction, she expressed remorse for her actions and said she did not know she was behaving the way the video reveals she did that night.

Obdulia Sanchez is seen in a photo released by the Merced County Sheriff's Department. "Never Jackie, and never Manuela". "I would like to say I'm sorry and that if I could take your place, I really would", said Sanchez. Two years later, she was abducted by a 46-year-old man, who sexually assaulted her and forced her to use methamphetamine and alcohol, which was the start of Sanchez's addictions to drugs and alcohol.

According to Merced County District Attorney Harold Nutt and hospital records, the accused had a blood alcohol level of 0.1% when the crash happened on 21 July 2017 in Los Banos, near Modesto but that did not stop her from livestreaming the misadventure, the Daily Mail reported.

He split the difference and gave her over six years. "It was the only way my sister would get a decent burial", she said in an August letter to local media.
