Jessica Allred sentenced to prison for fatal DUI crash

Jessica Lea Allred

A former San Luis Obispo resident was sentenced Monday to four years in state prison for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and two counts of DUI resulting in injury. Judge Craig van Rooyen gave Jessica Lea Allred the maximum sentence for her convictions.

Allred had been facing up to 10 years in prison if she were to be convicted of all counts and enhancements.

However, the jury opted not to convict Allred of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. By determining Allred did not act with gross negligence and by choosing to convict her of a lesser charge, the jury reduced the amount of time Allred will spend in prison.

On April 30, 2016, Allred crossed a double yellow line while driving on Highway 58 east of Santa Margarita following the Pozo Stampede concert. Allred’s car crashed head-on into the vehicle of Denise Fox, 56. Fox was pronounced dead at the scene. While at the hospital after the crash, Allred was found to have a blood alcohol level of .17.

Three weeks ago, Allred was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on a court order following the reading of the verdict. Allred is awaiting transfer to a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation facility.

    Well she is now at the State Prison for woman in Chowchilla, CA she will be evaluated for the first 90 days to see where and what risk she is to be housed in, one hopes now she will realize what she did and the consequences for her actions.

    This case was sad from the start, however I agree with Chase Martin the Prosecutor who did the case, Ms. Allred has not learned from her errors she had continued to party, drink and be free no bail for two + years.

    According to the Trib. story her lawyer said to the court his Client has NOT drank since the accident that is a lie and not true. Ms. Allred continued to drink use drugs, several of her former co-workers and others have proof via photos of her being drunk, drinking, smoking weed, etc. so after the Judge told her to avoid Bars and use of Alcohol and drugs she ignored the order and for two years continued to drink, travel, party and more so this Defendant did NOT learn from this accident.

    She even worked in another Bar all while waiting for the trial, thank God the facts came out to a point she should have gotten 10 years had the Jury had Judge knew the facts, maybe after time behind bars she might learn ?
