A California teenager pleaded not guilty Wednesday to felony charges of vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving after she lost control of her vehicle while livestreaming on Instagram and recording a crash that killed her younger sister.
The Los Angeles Times reports that she is also charged with two counts of driving under the influence, resulting in injury, and two counts of driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent, causing injury.
Obdulia Sanchez faced a judge Wednesday as she plead not guilty on all six charges against her.
Obdulia Sanchez filmed a video on her cell phone before, during and after the crash that was posted on Instagram. Sanchez was ejected through the back window of her sister's vehicle.
Ramnik Samrao, a public defender who represents Sanchez, said the teen believes she killed her sister. "This is the last thing that I wanted to happen, OK?"
Manchester city made Mendy the most expensive defender in history
New Manchester City signing Benjamin Mendy is confident he is the right man to join the most expensively-assembled defence in history.
"We don't know that she was drunk", he said. "I'm f****** sorry, baby, I did not mean to kill you sweetie".
Jacquelin and 14-year-old Manuela Seja were ejected through the back window.
"There is no blaming one person for this", Manuela said of the crash.
The grieving little sister said Obdulia Sanchez told relatives she wished that she, and not Jacqueline, had died in the crash.
Evelyn Sanchez, 12, also spoke to local reporters about the fatal auto crash and both of her sisters. Her parents, however, told the television station Jacqueline was going to be confirmed in a Catholic church. Look, I f-- love my sister to death. The Instagram statement said the social media network was "deeply saddened" about the incident.
Jose Mourinho: 'Paul Pogba showed his level against Barcelona'
Anthony Martial, Andreas Pereira and Pogba all threatened, but Manchester United were unable to find an equalizer. "It's very important to lose a match in pre-season", Mourinho told reporters after the match.
"She feels completely responsible and she said that over and over in the video", he said.
Contrasting Samrao's position, Merced's Chief Deputy District Attorney Harold Nutt believes that the case is clear cut. Everyone has only seen a few minutes of her life on an Instagram video.
Earlier this year, a 12-year-old Georgia girl live streamed her suicide, sparking a national conversation about the kind of content that's allowed to remain circulating on social media. "That's the allegation. She does obviously feel bad and she's trying to deal with it in the way that she can". She is being held on $300,000 bond.
The California Highway Patrol said Sanchez was driving a Buick Century when it veered onto the right shoulder of a road.
A mother and father in California are reeling from the worst kind of tragedy imaginable right now: a vehicle accident that left one of their teenage daughters dead and the other in jail on suspicion of drunk driving and manslaughter. Instead of celebrating Jacquelin's confirmation Saturday at their church, the Sanchez family is planning a funeral.
