Brandy Allen

MILWAUKEE — The sentencing of Brandy Allen, the woman accused of killing her daughter while driving drunk, has been postponed. It was supposed to happen Friday afternoon, May 4th.

Last month, Allen pleaded guilty to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle. In exchange for those guilty pleas, prosecutors dropped three other charges

Prosecutors say 37-year-old Allen was drunk when she crashed into a parked semi trailer, killing one of her daughters and critically injuring the other.

According to the criminal complaint in this case, Allen was driving her two daughters home around 2:00 a.m. Christmas night, when she took her eyes off the road to address her five-year-old daughter Jahanyuh in the backseat. Then, Allen’s 10-year-old daughter Brianna yelled “mommy” right before their car ran into the parked semi.

After police arrived on the scene, they ran a record check of Allen with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and learned Allen’s driver’s license was suspended. Officials also performed a sobriety test on Allen. The complaint says the tests did show evidence that Allen may be impaired. She was transported to the State of Wisconsin Crime Laboratory for a blood draw, which showed her BAC was .107.

Allen faces up to 25 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.
