(KNZA)--A Texas woman convicted of vehicular homicide in connection with a 2021 Brown County collision that claimed the life of a Sabetha girl has learned her fate.

Brown County Kevin Hill said 38-year-old Catrina Weathersett was sentenced February 1 in Brown Court District Court to 12 months in the jail on the misdemeanor charge, which is the maximum for the offense.

Six months of the sentence was suspended and she was ordered to serve the remaining 6 months in jail. Upon her release, she will be placed on 12-months supervised probation. Weathersett will have to surrender her commercial driver's license until the probation is over.

Weathersett pleaded no contest in late November to the charge.

6-year-old Taya Mooney died from injuries received in the July 25, 2021 wreck on U.S. 75 Highway near Sabetha when a car she was a passenger in was struck from behind by a semi truck driven by Weathersett.

She was charged following a lengthy investigation by the Kansas Highway Patrol that included dashboard video of the collision.
