A 19-year-old, Obdulia Sanchez, was sentenced to six years in prison on Thursday after driving drunk while live streaming the crash that killed her younger sister, in 2017.
Last July, Sanchez was driving drunk with her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline, in the car. While she was driving, she began to livestream on Instagram. The video shows her taking her hands off the steering wheel, she then lost control of the vehicle and over corrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn, ejecting and killing her sister.
Sanchez was not streaming during the crash but decided to stream again, after the crash.
Sanchez began streaming in a field near the crashed vehicle, looking into the camera and saying, "Everybody, if I go to jail for life you already know why." In the video, you could see Jacqueline dead on the ground.
But the horrifying video didn't end there...
"My sister is dying. Look I love my sister to death, Jacqueline, please wake up." she added. "Jacqueline, please wake up. This is the last thing I wanted to happen.I killed my sister, but I don't care. I killed my sister. I know I'm going to prison, but I don't care. I'm sorry, baby. Imma hold it down. Rest in peace, sweetie."
The entire livestream was posted on social media by one of Sanchez's followers, who managed to film the video before it expired from her feed.
"I'm so sorry, if I could take her place, I would. My negligence killed my sister. I was stupid, immature, and irresponsible," Sanchez said in court.
Sanchez was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment stemming from the July 2017 crash.
As to why she made the livestream of her sister, she said that she knew her followers would donate money for her sister's funeral, which her family wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise.
This 14-year-old girl's life was taken due to horrifying negligence of her older sister, do you think six years in prison is enough?
