Littlebear was under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine at the time of the wreck. She also had two children in her car.

Assistant District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said, "It has taken two years to bring justice to Ms. Mamary's family and colleagues. This jury clearly sent a message about how they felt about drunk drivers killing people in our community."

Littlebear will officially be sentenced in April.
