RoccerMom of MySpace plead guilty to manslaughter

A woman known on MySpace as "RoccerMom" pleaded guilty to manslaughter Friday in the drunken car crash that killed her daughter's friend after she took the teens clubbing.

The guilty plea was part of a bargain under which she will be sentenced to no more than two to six years in prison.

Ann Marie Ciarcia, 47, of Westchester, New York, tearfully admitted that her blood alcohol level was at 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit, when she drove the wrong way on a highway and slammed into another car on Sept. 18. The driver of that car was seriously injured and 16-year-old Emily Cornish, who was in the back seat of Ciarcia's car, was killed.

Ciarcia, her 15-year-old daughter Alexa and Cornish were returning home after a night at the Continental Club in Manhattan.

Besides second-degree manslaughter, Ciarcia pleaded guilty to vehicular assault and driving while intoxicated, the AP reports.

Westchester County Court Judge Robert DiBella scheduled sentencing for March 23 and promised a sentence no greater than two to six years in prison. The maximum is five to 15 years.

DiBella has said he will consider splitting prison time and probation, which could limit Ciarcia's incarceration to six months.

Ciarcia had a MySpace page on which she called herself "RoccerMom" and listed nightclubbing among her interests.
