Green Bay woman gets 80 years for fatal drunken-driving crash near Lambeau

A Green Bay area woman has been sentenced to 80 years in prison for drag racing on a busy street while drunk, and causing a crash that killed two teens.

Brown County Circuit Judge Sue Bischel cited Monique Geske's lack of remorse in handing down the long sentence.

And the judge said the Geske, 46, would probably die in prison.

A jury convicted her in March on two counts of reckless homicide, two counts of drunken homicide and one count of reckless endangerment.

The crash happened last June on a business street south of Lambeau Field in Ashwaubenon.

Geske's car sped through an intersection and killed Talhia Heroux, 18, and Ashley Britsch-Knetzger, 18, who had just left work at a nearby restaurant.

Geske's lawyer promised an appeal.
