Woman gets three years in jail for crash that killed toddler

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Two years after a fatal crash, a woman was sentenced to three years in jail for the death of three-year-old Rodriguez Taylor. 

Sheba Bosabose was sentenced Monday to 36 months in the Ohio Department of Corrections after the jury found her guilty of vehicular homicide in the crash that killed Rodriguez. 

Last month, a jury found Bosabose not guilty on a count of vehicular manslaughter and an aggravated vehicular assault charge. The jury was hung on another charge.

The fatal crash happened in October of 2012 when mother Jocelyn Austin was taking her three young boys for an early morning walk. A car, driven by Bosabose, ran into them, killing Rodriguez.

The initial police investigation alleged that Bosabose was driving drunk. 

While Austin said a conviction was good news, she said she didn't feel any closure. 

"She should have just apologized, and confessed that she did it,” Austin said.

 Along with the 36 month sentence, Bosabose will also have her license suspended.
