A 33-year-old woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a drunken driving case has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison.
A U.S. District Court judge recently sentenced Tanaya Janatia Tromblee to 46 months in prison followed by three years of court supervision. She was also ordered to pay $82,213 in restitution.
On Oct. 23, 2017, Tromblee ran a stop sign at a Wapato intersection and crashed into another vehicle. Her passenger died, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Tromblee was under the influence of methamphetamine and alcohol at the time of the crash, the release said.
She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter June 5.
Federal authorities had jurisdiction in the case because Tromblee is a Yakama citizen.
