RAPID CITY, South Dakota — A South Dakota woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 37-year-old Valerie Good Voice Flute was also ordered to spend three years on supervised release. Good Voice Flute earlier pleaded guilty to the single charge.
Authorities say Valerie Good Voice Flute got into a motor vehicle crash on May 2013 near Loneman. Authorities say the woman had been driving under the influence, and the incident resulted in the death of Gillard Good Voice Flute.
The Oglala woman is under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
