CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Connie Gates, a woman convicted of vehicular homicide will spend 30 years in prison in the death of a taxi cab driver.

Sentencing was Thursday in the Linn County District Court.  She was convicted back in June.

In April, Gates crashed a stolen car into a taxi cab in Cedar Rapids killing the cab driver, 76-year-old Richard Dankert.

Tests showed that Gates had crack cocaine and marijuana in her system at the time.
