JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) --

A north Florida woman convicted of driving under the influence in a crash that left another woman dead has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Sasha Pringle was sentenced Tuesday, November 9. A Duval County jury had previously found the 32-year-old guilty of DUI manslaughter,
vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a crash.

Witnesses say Pringle was driving recklessly in February when
she knocked 41-year-old Luma Kajy's sport utility vehicle over the
edge of a bridge to her death. Pringle left the scene, but a
witness followed her home.

Investigators did not find evidence of alcohol use, but a
toxicology exam tested positive for marijuana, painkillers and
anti-anxiety drugs.

The defense argued there was no evidence that Pringle's vehicle
hit Kajy's.

    What is 30 years going to do for this non violent crime? The gov. should be concentrating on murders and rapists.

    I wouldnt call 30 years in prison a slap on the wrist.

    Typical...justice everywhere but here. You never get death cases in Tally and when someone high on pot, thinks his car is a jet plane and flys down a dark road killing his friend and a woman - a mom and loved family member - that guy gets 90 days! Justice will come one day..one way or another. But tallahassee needs to wake up! Being soft on crime is dangerous for every one of us!
