Former Texas Tech Student Jeena Roberts Sentenced to 15 Years for Intoxication Manslaughter

Lubbock Active Jail Roster

A former Texas Tech student will spend time in prison for intoxication manslaughter.

Twenty-three year-old Jeena Roberts pleaded guilty to intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault on Monday, and received a 15-year prison sentence.

In October 2010, Roberts rear-ended a car, resulting in the death of 54-year-old Linda Smaltz. She had been drinking before driving at high speeds down Fourth Street when she hit Smaltz near Avenue L.

Roberts received 15 years for the intoxication manslaughter charge and eight years for intoxication assault, which will be served concurrently.

She will not be eligible for parole until half her sentence has been served, since Roberts pleaded guilty to charges which classified the vehicle as a deadly weapon.
