Jayana Webb sentenced to decades in prison for killing two state troopers and a pedestrian, while under the influence in Philadelphia

A Pennsylvania woman, who tweeted boasts about her reckless driving minutes before killing two state troopers and a pedestrian on I-95 in Philadelphia, was sentenced to decades in prison on Wednesday.

Jayana Webb, 23, who is seven months pregnant, received a sentence of 27 and a half to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of third-degree murder and homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence.

Her attorney, Mike Walker, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that, according to the terms of her guilty plea, she will be allowed to remain free until she gives birth in February.

Afterward, she will have the opportunity to spend some time bonding with her child before she is required to report to prison.

Webb’s blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the early morning crash on March 21, 2022.

The wreck claimed the lives of Pennsylvania State Troopers Branden Sisca, 29, and Martin Mack, 33, as well as Reyes Riviera Oliveras, 28, a pedestrian whom the troopers were assisting in reaching safety away from the roadway.

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner described the outcome of the case as “a just resolution of one of the most shocking incidents of vehicular violence in recent memory.”

In court hearings leading up to her sentencing, prosecutors presented evidence, including Webb’s own posts on social media, in which she boasted about being pulled over for “doing 110 in a 50” mph zone shortly before the fatal crash.

Around the same time, the troopers who had pulled her over on the interstate were called away to provide assistance to Oliveras, who was attempting to cross I-95 on foot near Lincoln Financial Field.

As the troopers were assisting Oliveras into a police vehicle, Webb allegedly tried to speed past the troopers’ parked SUV but lost control, resulting in the deaths of all three men.

Prosecutors had argued that Webb’s decision to continue speeding after being pulled over constituted an act of malice.

Webb’s attorney said his client expressed remorse for her actions and stated that she had apologized to the family in the courtroom on Wednesday.
