Woman who pleaded guilty to impaired driving in the death of Kassandra Kaulius to be sentenced Friday

The woman who drove drunk in the crash that killed a young softball player in Surrey last year is set to learn her sentence Friday.

Crown Counsel has argued Natasha Warren should spend three and a half years in prison for what happened back on May 3rd, 2011.

That’s the night Warren drank a bottle-and-a-half of wine, got behind the wheel, and sped through a red light at a Surrey intersection.

She hit Kassandra Kaulius’ red BMW, and killed the 22 year old, who had been heading home from a softball game.

Warren pleaded guilty back in the summer to dangerous and impaired driving causing death, and fleeing the scene.

Defence is seeking only two years behind bars, while both sides have agreed on a five year driving ban.

Kaulius’ family says no matter the sentence, it’ll be a slap on the wrist.

They say they will keep fighting to have impaired driving taken seriously in Canada.
