FL Woman Sentenced to 24 Years After Fatal Drunk Tweeting and Driving Accident

A 22 year old South Florida woman was sentenced to 24 years in prison after drunk tweeting and driving, which led to the death of two people.

A Broward County judge also said Kayla Mendoza will remain on probation for six years after her release, reported wfla.com.

In February 2015, Mendoza pleaded guilty to two DUI manslaughter charges in the November 2013 crash that killed two 21 year olds, Marisa Catronio and Kaitlyn Ferrante.

Evidence showed that before the Sawgrass Expressway accident, Mendoza tweeted "2 drunk 2 care."

Authorities later said that after a night of drinking with coworkers, her blood-alcohol level was almost twice Florida's legal limit.

The maximum sentence Mendoza faced was 30 years behind bars.
