Phoenix, Arizona – Today, Rafaela Vasquez (01/74) pled guilty to ENDANGERMENT, A CLASS 6 UNDESIGNATED OFFENSE and a Judge in the Superior Court of Maricopa sentenced her to three years of supervised probation and determined that the charge would only be designated a misdemeanor upon successful completion of her sentence.
On March 18, 2018 Vasquez was driving a vehicle when it struck and killed a woman in Tempe, Arizona.
“The defendant in this matter was responsible for the operation of a vehicle on our city streets that ended with a woman being killed,” stated Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell. “Determining an appropriate plea in this case involved considering a multitude of factors. We believe the Judge ordered an appropriate sentence based on the mitigating and aggravating factors.”
Mitchell went on to say, “Getting behind the wheel of a car is a serious responsibility. Regardless of whatever technology might be available to drivers, safety for everyone on the street and in the vehicle must always be a driver’s first priority.”
