A Moncks Corner woman was sentenced to 17 years in prison for a fatal DUI crash in 2011.
Following a week-long trial in Moncks Corner, Shana Cecil Robinson, 36, was found guilty Friday of felony DUI for the death of 47-year-old Candy Zoll.
She'll have to serve about 14 years before she can be eligible for parole.
Robinson drank vodka with friends at two bars before getting behind the wheel and crashing into Zoll's vehicle near Broughton Road in Moncks Corner on Nov. 10, 2011, according to prosecutors.
Robinson was speeding 44 mph above the 35 mph speed limit when she crossed the center line and crashed into Zoll's vehicle head on, according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors said a blood test exam showed Robinson was under the influence of alcohol; diphenhydramine, an antihystamine often referred to as Benadryl; trazodone, an antidepressant; and clonozepam, which is used to treat seizures and anxiety.
