A woman convicted of manslaughter, aggravated assault and four counts of endangering a child in an accident that claimed the lives of two sisters, five-year-old Codie and nine-month-old Charli Sackett, in Morgan Mill in 2018, is up for parole in December.
Alyssa Litwin is in the review process by a parole officer with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
The officer will interview Litwin, review letters of support and protest, then hand over the summary for the parole board to make its decision.
After her conviction in 2021, an Erath County jury sentenced Litwin to 12 years in prison.
The high-profile case centered around Litwin’s actions moments before the accident with the state claiming she was on her phone rather than paying attention to the road.
Litwin’s eligibility for parole is Dec. 2, almost four years to the day the accident occurred.
District Attorney Alan Nash said that while Litwin is eligible to be released from prison, she is not entitled to it.
“It will be up to the Department of Criminal Justice parole officials to decide whether to grant it at that time,” Nash told Beneath the Surface News. “Parole involves many variables internal to the prison system. We have yet to be informed that she will or will not be granted parole.”
