Maria Espinoza, 23, faces up to 13 years in Federal prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter and drunken driving in the accident that killed 22-year-old Ashley Roberta and seriously injured U.S. national team star Charlie Davies in October 2009.

According to a court document, Espinoza, Davies and Roberta left a Washington nightclub together at about 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 9, 2009, the eve of a U.S. World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica. Trying to use a GPS to get directions to Davies' hotel, Espinoza missed the exit to Davies' hotel on the George Washington Memorial Parkway, took her eyes off the road to look at the GPS again and hit a bridge support.

Sentencing guidelines suggest Espinoza, who was driving above the 40 mph speed limit and had a blood-alcohol level of .13, will spend closer to 3-4 years in Federal prison. She also agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of restitution to Davies and the Roberta family.
