CLEVELAND -- Shamanique Bryant has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for running over Mattie Stubbs and dragging her behind a vehicle, causing her death, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty confirmed.

On Dec. 7, 2013, Bryant, 28, of Cleveland, and Stubbs were outside of a nightclub in East Cleveland when Bryant's brother was shot.

Bryant attempted to drive her brother and Stubbs to the hospital while under the influence of alcohol.

Bryant was driving at excessive speed when she struck another vehicle that was stopped at a red light on Euclid Avenue.

The collision caused Stubbs and Bryant's brother to be thrown from the car. While attempting to drive off and leave them behind, Bryant ran over Stubbs and dragged her approximately 400 feet.

Stubbs died from her injuries.

On April 21, Bryant entered a plea of guilty to one count each of aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular assault, failure to stop after an accident and DUI.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Brian J. Corrigan sentenced Bryant to 10 years in prison.

"There's a good chance that Mattie Stubbs would be alive today if this defendant had not tried to flee the scene of an accident that she caused," said Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Brian Radigan.

"The judge's sentence will give her 10 years to reflect on the seriousness of her actions and their devastating consequences."
