FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Fremont woman has been given 12 months of probation for helping to supply booze that contributed to the death of her teenage brother.

The Fremont Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1gKgJnW ) that 19-year-old Yesenia “Izzy” Valdez was sentenced on Tuesday. She’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of a misdemeanor: procuring alcohol for a minor. The charge was reduced from a felony and an unrelated shoplifting case was dismissed in exchange for Valdez’s plea.

Police say Valdez helped 21-year-old Dakota McDonald provide alcohol to Valdez’s 16-year-old brother, Jaime (HEYE’-may) Valdez. Jaime Valdez was found outside the morning of Nov. 16, when, according to the National Weather Service, Fremont’s temperature was 2 degrees, with a wind chill of minus 16.

McDonald has been sentenced to 30 months of probation.
