Andrews will only serve one year until she is up for parole. Once she is released, she faces five years of probation and is required to carry out 300 hours of community service. Her licence will also be suspended for the next 15 years.

Family and friends of Brienzo presented impact statements to the court prior to sentencing. They spoke about their memories of Katie and her accomplishments in the community.
