A Moneta woman was sentenced Friday to nearly three years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter of a Moneta man as a result of a DUI vehicle accident Aug. 8, 2019.

According to court documents, Brandi Michelle Credille, 36, was sentenced to 10 years in jail with 7 years and 1 month suspended for the felony involuntary manslaughter charge and was fined $1,000. Her driver’s license was surrendered indefinitely, and upon release, she will undergo three years of supervised probation.

The sentence will run concurrently with a sentence of two years of prison with 1 year and 1 month suspended for felony child neglect. This means the sentence will run at the same time as the other.

In addition, she will serve 30 days in jail for a misdemeanor DUI with child charge.
