A Green Bay woman was sentenced to nine years in prison by a federal court for a crash caused by drunk driving that resulted in the death of one of her passengers and injuries for another.

The 28-year-old plead guilty to vehicular manslaughter and reckless endangerment for the crash on the Menominee Indian Reservation in Neopit last August. She had lost control of her vehicle and hit a tree, according to investigators. Judge William Griesbach sentenced 5 years of supervised release following her release from prison.
