GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A woman who struck and killed a Jesuit volunteer on a cross-country bicycling trip in western Colorado has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Thirty-year-old Tonie Rosales learned her punishment Friday in Grand Junction after pleading guilty to vehicular homicide in 25-year-old Eunjey Cho's death. Prosecutors agreed to drop drug possession and bail violation charges against her.
The Daily Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1pjda7A ) reports that Rosales had cocaine and anti-depressants in her system when she fell asleep at the wheel and hit Cho on Sept. 18, 2013 on her way to a court hearing in a drunken-driving case. Cho later died at the hospital.
He was a volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Washington and was riding to his hometown of Princeton, New Jersey to raise money for the organization.
