A California woman who live-streamed the 2017 DUI crash that killed her 14-year-old sister was paroled earlier this month after serving a 26-month prison sentence.
Last February, Obdulia Sanchez was sentenced to six years and four months in prison for causing a single-vehicle wreck near Los Banos which killed Jacqueline Sanchez and injured her sister’s friend, Manuela Ceja, 15. A spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) confirmed to the Merced Sun-Star on Saturday that Obdulia Sanchez was released from custody on September 21.
The then-18-year-old used Instagram to record the fatal crash and its aftermath. In the graphic video, she can be heard telling Jacqueline Sanchez to get up and saying that she killed her sister and that she’s going to jail.

Convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI, and child endangerment, Obdulia Sanchez’s blood alcohol content was 0.106 roughly 90 minutes after the wreck.
The CDCR official told KFSN that Obdulia Sanchez was credited for the time she served before sentencing and for completing rehabilitative programs while behind bars.
