She was booked into the Newton County Jail June 7 and bonded out.

Alcovy Circuit District Attorney Layla Zon told The Covington News the special presentment to the Grand jury June 1 came after an investigation by the Georgia State Patrol’s Specialized Accident Reconstruction Team into the Dec. 3, 2016 crash that claimed a life.

"Charges were recently taken and this case has not been adjudicated," GSP's public information officer said. "This case is not releasable but it has been completed by SCRT."
