2 Drunk 2 Care

That's what a young woman tweeted just before killing two other young girls as she sped the wrong way on a Florida road.

These words came back to haunt her in a big way as she received a 24 year prison sentence.
Florida’s “Pothead Princess” was sentenced to 24 years in prison for the drunken crash that abruptly sent two young women to an early death.

Kayla Mendoza, who tweeted “2 Drunk 2 Care” shortly before the fatal crash, begged for forgiveness on Monday during a tearful plea to her victims’ families.

“No matter how much time passes they will never leave my heart,” Mendoza, 22, said, according to NBC Miami. “I think about them every day, and I regret my choices every day.”

Mendoza downed a pair of jumbo margaritas in November 2013 before she climbed in her boyfriend’s car and sped off, cruising the wrong way down a Broward County expressway.
I always get a little choked up when someone who has unjustly taken another life states that "I now have to live with this the rest of my life," or "They'll always be in my heart." Not.

24 years means what? How long will she have to serve? In California, in practice, it's a mandatory 7 years. Mandatory isn't mandatory though because usually there is an early release for maybe 3 years?
