BAKERSFIELD - Jurors have returned a guilty and not-guilty verdict in the case against a Bakersfield woman, accused of killing a motorcyclist while texting and driving.
On Friday, the jurors returned two verdicts in the case. Reynosa was found not-guilty of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
She faces a maximum of one year in jail.
Authorities said that in April 2012, Anna Reynosa slammed her car into motorcyclist Charla Wilkins stopped at a red light.
Wilkins died as a result of the collision.
Reynosa was charged with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence for using her cell phone.
The defense for 22-year-old Reynosa wrapped up its closing arguments Wednesday.
Prosecutors originally offered a plea deal that would have imposed a maximum penalty of two years, but she rejected that offer.
