A woman who pleaded guilty for causing a fatal motorcycle crash in February was sentenced on April 25.

Lasha Wooten pleaded guilty to knowingly operating a motor vehicle while suspended – causing death for striking the motorcycle ridden by David and Gisele Curtis on February 7. Gisele was killed after both were ejected from their motorcycle.

As a result of the plea, Wooten will serve a conditional 12 months jail term during which time she will receive occasional release to go to work, go to school, and visit her children. She will also serve three years probation with her drivers licensed revoked for six months and was ordered by the court to pay $11,000 restitution, a fine that was less than one-third of the recommended amount.

Should any of this sentence be violated by Wooten, the judge could enforce three years of imprisonment, in addition to the three years of probation.
