Warren woman sentenced to prison after fatal accident

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren woman will do time behind bars for a deadly drunk driving accident.

Debra Paden was sentenced to six months in prison for vehicular homicide and driving under the influence.

The Saint Patrick's Day accident on Riverview Street killed 19-year-old Joshua Kale.

The case was originally sent to the grand jury, but it was then returned to the municipal court.

"And that issue was whether or not her intoxication is what created the crash. So that missing link or element is what made it so difficult to get through," says Warren City Prosecutor, Traci Timko Rose.

Paden had twice the legal blood alcohol limit in her system at the time of the incident. She was also sentenced to a three-year license suspension.
