A 23-year-old woman pleaded no contest to vehicular manslaughter on July 17 in a case resulting from a collision in which her car struck a tree, killing two passengers and injuring two others, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has announced.
The defendant, Jeanette Romero, entered the plea to two counts of vehicular manslaughter, and also admitted great bodily injury allegations. She is expected to be sentenced to two years and eight months in state prison when she returns to court on Jan. 20.
Deputy District Attorney Colby Cano said Romero had been at a downtown Los Angeles club with four of her friends on Nov. 3, celebrating 22-year-old Ana Cuadra’s birthday. Romero was driving northbound on the Pasadena (110) Freeway when she hit a curb at a turnout, striking a chain link fence and a tree, the prosecutor said.
Blanca Belman-Almanza, 23, and Cuadra were killed.
