Woman Gets 32 years For 2 DWI-Related Deaths

A Fort Worth driver blamed for a multi-vehicle DWI wreck that left two dead and two hurt apologized to the families before being sentenced to 32 years in prison.

Alisia Consuela Padilla, 39, pleaded guilty to two counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault. She received 16-year terms on the manslaughter counts, to be served consecutively, plus concurrent 10-year terms for assault.

Padilla pleaded guilty Monday, the day she faced trial over the 2008 accident that killed 18-year-old Danielle Hooten and her 24-year-old roommate Cynthia Revilla, who was driving.

Hooten's son and Padilla's husband were injured.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Padilla's blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit for driving.

Defense attorney Warren St. John says Padilla suffered a concussion and has little memory of the wreck.
