Almost two years ago, we brought you the terrible story of Kaila Mendoza, who tweeted ‘2 drunk 2 care’ before drunkenly driving the wrong way down a highway and killing two best friends in a head-on car collision.
Mendoza pled guilty to the charges back in February, and yesterday was sentenced to 24 years in jail.
She had this to say at her sentencing.
“This all may be my fault, but at the end of the day, I’m a human being just like everyone else. I have a heart, and it aches everyday. The guilt is overwhelming. I want to speak about this accident with everyone so that I can prevent this from ever happening again.”
A self-proclaimed ‘Pothead Princess’ who tweeted often about smoking, she was driving with a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit.
Reminder kids. Never, never ever, drink and drive.
