Edith Delgado posted $100,000 bail Friday afternoon and will remain free while appealing her vehicular manslaughter conviction, San Mateo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe reported Saturday.
The 19-year-old Redwood City resident was convicted in June of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in connection with the July 2006 crash on U.S. Highway 101 in Menlo Park that killed three people, including two members of the Tongan royal family.
Delgado was in custody in San Mateo County jail Friday morning after Superior Court Judge John Runde ordered her to post bail if she wanted to remain free during the appeal.
Wagstaffe said she posted bail around 3:30 p.m. Friday.
On Aug. 24, Delgado was sentenced to two years in jail. She already has 516 days credit for time served, including credit for good behavior.
