A woman involved in the drug-related shooting death of a high school student in 2011 was sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison on Monday.
Juliana Helene Olague pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for her role in the drug-rip death of Carlos Sandoval on the far east side on Dec. 31, 2011.
Olague, 23, was one of five defendants charged in connection with 17-year-old Sandoval’s death. She and the other defendants had arranged to purchase a pound of marijuana from Sandoval.
Rather than pay, they tried to steal the drugs from Sandoval. In a struggle, defendant Keanu Deano Castaneda shot and killed Sandoval.
Castaneda, 22, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 10 ½ years in prison.
Olague was not in the house when the shooting occurred, but was at the scene in the getaway car.
