Jan. 10, 2018
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A Wyoming woman who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide for a crash in Greeley that killed a man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The Greeley Tribune reports that 30-year-old Ashley Moore was sentenced on Tuesday for a January 2016 crash that killed the passenger in her vehicle, 46-year-old Gerald Sisneros.
Police say Moore's blood alcohol content was as high as .248 when she crashed head-on with another vehicle.
John Morrissey, Moore's defense attorney, asked the judge to hand down a lighter sentence, citing her lack of criminal history and the fact that she has battled alcoholism since her teenage years.
Multiple members of Sisneros' family forgave Moore in court.
