A woman who was convicted of DWI will receive a lighter sentence due to the victim’s family’s forgiveness. The woman hit a car in December of 2011 killing the occupant. The incident occurred on the woman’s 21st birthday. Witnesses at the scene described her as being heavily intoxicated.

The family of the victim agreed to a plea deal as an act of forgiveness. The women plead guilty to felony death by motor vehicle and DWI. She will serve 6 months in jail and 36 months on probation. The woman could have been facing several years in prison otherwise.
