Carly Rousso, 20, was sentenced to five years in the 2012 DUI crash that killed 5-year-old Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento.
“I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry for what happened last September 3, 2012. I wish more than anything it could have been me instead of Jaclyn. I am not going to let her die in vain,” Rousso said at her sentencing hearing at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan. She said she is committed to staying sober. “There’s no words in the English-speaking language that convey how I truly feel right now.”
