Jessica Williams Could Become Parole Eligible

A Las Vegas woman serving 18 to 48 years in prison for killing six teenagers in a car crash 17 years ago could be close to release.

Jessica Williams was found guilty in February 2001 of six counts of felony driving with a prohibited substance in her blood. She has been incarcerated since 2000 for killing the teenagers, who were working on a road cleanup crew in the median of Interstate 15.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reportsa ruling issued yesterday by the Nevada Supreme Court said that “good time” credits earned in prison apply to minimum sentences, meaning William’s credits could make her eligible for parole.
