A Californian woman convicted of driving under the influence while broadcasting the crash that killed her younger sister was conditionally released after her 26-month prison sentence.
Obdulia Sanchez, 20, was convicted of severe manslaughter of vehicles, DUI and child threat.
In February 2018, Sanchez was sentenced to six years and four months in prison for the crash that killed her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline.
Sanchez was reportedly released on September 21 after receiving credit for good conduct.
Obdulia Sanchez (shown in court in 2017), was released conditionally after 26 months in prison for drunken driving while streaming live the crash that killed her 14-year-old sister in 2017

Video evidence: Sanchez's live streams were captured by a woman who followed her and managed to catch them before they were removed from her timeline (before crash left, then right)
The car driven by Sanchez turned on the shoulder of a road in Los Banos, about 100 miles south of San Francisco.
Authorities say she has corrected too much, causing the vehicle to turn and tilt, causing Jacqueline to be ejected and killed.
& # 39; I am so sorry, if I could take her place, I would. My negligence killed my sister. I was stupid, immature and irresponsible, & Sanchez said in February during her conviction.
Prosecutors said Sanchez was streaming live on Instagram while driving, and the video showed that she was taking her hands off the wheel.
The horrific live stream of the crash was posted on social media by a young woman who knew Sanchez and managed to film a copy of the video before it disappeared from her feed.
Sanchez was also live streaming before the crash, with video showing her and her little sister in their Buick 2003 together with Jacqueline & # 39; s girlfriend Manuela Seja.
The three went to Stockton at that time to attend Jacqueline's Catholic Confirmation Ceremony the next day.
Sanchez, with a blood alcohol content of 0.1 percent according to Merced County District Attorney Harold Nutt and hospital records, lost control of the car outside of Los Banos and sent it down a fence, after which Jacqueline flew out of the rear window.

That was the moment when Sanchez decided to take her phone and go live streaming again and capture her bloody sister while she died.
She was seen in a field near the crashed vehicle, looked into the camera and said, "Everyone, if I go to … jail for life, you already know why."
Jacqueline was seen lifeless on the floor with clear signs of head trauma.
Seja, who was also ejected from the vehicle, was also seen in the video as she waved her arms and tried to call for help in the distance.
& # 39; My sister is dying. Look … I … love my sister to death, & Sanchez continued and added: & # 39; Jacqueline, please wake up. & # 39;
She then began to kiss her sister's face.
& # 39; I love my sister's death. I don't give f ** k. We're going to die. This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us, but it just happened, & said Sanchez, who also had blood on her face.
& # 39; Jacqueline, please wake up. This is the last thing I wanted to happen … I killed my sister, but I don't care. I killed my sister. I know I'm going to jail, but I don't care. I'm sorry, honey. Imma hold it down. Rest in peace, darling. & # 39;
She then said to her deceased sister: & # 39; If you don't survive, I'm so sorry. & # 39;
In August 2017, Sanchez claimed that she only recorded the video of her sister who died because she knew her sister had to be buried and that her family did not have the money

Sanchez later explained to the police that although she was streaming live, she stopped the video twice to call 911 and get help.
During one of those phone calls, Sanchez said to the operator: & Can you come and pick up my sister, she is dead **. Man, I just crashed and I was DUI. Can you please come and pick us up? & # 39;
Sanchez started in August 2017 about the fatal accident.
She claimed that she had filmed her sister Jacqueline's lifeless and blood-covered body when the young girl got her last breath because she knew her family would need the money for the girl's funeral.
Sanchez was put behind bars just after midnight on July 22 after a trip to the hospital
That surprising statement was casually in the form of a & # 39; P.S. & # 39; at the end of an eight-page letter, Sanchez wrote from behind bars at the John Latorraca Correctional Facility and sent it to a local CBS branch KPGE.
& # 39; P.S: I made that video because I knew I had more than 5K followers. & # 39; It was the only way my sister could get a decent funeral & # 39 ;, Sanchez wrote.
& # 39; I would never expose my sister like that. I expected the public to donate money because my family is not rich. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; Sorry for making that video. I look terrible but I have achieved my goal. & # 39;
Her claim that the livestream was made for funeral costs, however, seems to be at odds with what her lawyer appointed by the court had previously said in court.
At the time, Ramnik Samrao said Sanchez did not know what was happening or what she was doing in the moments after the crash, a claim she acknowledged in court and said she looked like a & # 39; monster & # 39; in the images.
Samrao also said that he did not know that his client had written the letter or was planning to send the letter.
More than $ 12,000 was raised for Jacqueline via a Go Fund Me page.
