With time she already has spent in jail and with good behavior in prison, Sanchez could be eligible for release on September 21, 2020.

Moments after her sister was thrown from a tumbling vehicle in a crash she streamed on Instagram, Obdulia Sanchez predicted she would never be a free woman. "I understand that. I don't care". She streamed the gruesome video on Instagram which showed Sanchez screaming over the body of her sister, Jacqueline Sanchez.

A California teen has been sentenced to more than six years behind bars after driving drunk while livestreaming, resulting in a crash that killed her younger sister.

She pleaded no contest to the multiple felony charges last week.

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.

The two passengers, who weren't wearing seatbelts, were ejected from the auto, authorities said.

Her blood samples also tested positive for marijuana and cocaine.

"Trust me, it's like a reflex", she said. "I'm a hold it down". Rest in peace, sweetie.

Told the elder sister leading up to her sentencing on Thursday, 'I'm so sorry, if I could take her place, I would. "Jacqueline, please wake up". In the video of the crash, Sanchez could be seen singing along to music before swerving off the road. "She just wants someone to show up and help her sister". "I would never expose my sister like that". I anticipated the public donating money because my family isn't rich.

Sanchez could be eligible for release as early as September 21, 2020 with time she has already spent in jail and good behavior in prison. Min pushed for the maximum penalty of 12 years for what he said was "callousness" exhibited by Sanchez.

The Merced Sun Star reports that before Merced County Visiting Judge Ronald Hansen handed down her sentence, Obdulia read an emotional statement in which she expressed grave remorse.

She will be eligible for release by September 2020 as she had already spent time in prison and has been recorded as a person with good behaviour, Merced Sun-Star reported.

As The Washington Post's Elizabeth Dwoskin and Craig Timberg reported in 2017, "live video of violent incidents, including suicides, beheadings and torture, have gone viral, with some reaching millions of people".
