UPDATE: Alix Tichelman, (27) pleaded guilty to involuntarily manslaughter, a charge that had been reduced from manslaughter by the prosecutor in connection with the death of former Google executive Forest Hayes (51). A change in California law also required that a felony drug charge levied against Tichelman be reduced to a misdemeanor. Once these changes took effect, she pleaded straight up to the court without a plea bargain that pertained to sentencing. The judge then sentenced her to 6 years, however after receiving credit for the time she has already served, 321 days (doubled in her case because it was served in a county jail), she is likely to be released after serving 3 more years. The defense maintains that it was an accidental overdose between two consenting adults.
