BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield woman convicted in a deadly distracted driving case is choosing to go to jail.
Anna Reynosa denied her three year probation sentence in exchange for a year in county jail.
Reynosa was found guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in May for hitting and killing Charla Wilkins while she was texting and driving in 2012.
This was a first-of-its kind case in Kern County -- since the state's ban on texting-and-driving took effect.
According to her attorneys -- when Reynosa finishes her year in jail, she will not be required to do anything extra.
