STUART, Fla. – Reports confirm that a central Florida woman gets 10 years for fatal DUI. She has been sentenced for a drunken driving crash which resulted in the death of her passenger.
The incident took place in June 2012 and she pleaded no contest to DUI manslaughter after which 24-year-old Sarah Fulton was sentenced to 10 years by a Martin County judge on Tuesday.
Sources told that in June 2012, Fulton crashed her car into a power pole and as a result of the crash, the car split into two. This accident left 22-year-old Raven Feurstein dead at the scene.
According to Florida law, a driver is considered as impaired if their blood alcohol level is 0.08 or more and records show that three hours after the crash, Fulton’s blood alcohol level was recorded at 0.098 percent.
