The Central Juvenile and Family Court today sentenced a teen driver charged with reckless driving in 2010 to two years in prison, with a three-year suspended jail term.
Her original sentence of three years was reduced to two years in exchange for her testimony.
The court also sentenced her to 48 hours of community service and imposed a driving ban on the teen driver until she reaches the age of 25.
The girl, who was 16-years old during the time of the accident, was driving a Honda Civic which rear-ended a van on Don Muang tollway on December 27, 2010, killing nine passengers who were thrown from the van and fell from a flyover.
The hearing was attended by the unlicensed teenage driver under the pseudonym "Praewa", her parents, and families of the nine people who died in the crash.
The court had earlier repeatedly postponed the young defendant's hearing before delivering its verdict on the case today.
