STOCKTON, CA (AP) -- Two California farm labor supervisors charged in the 2008 heat-related death of a pregnant teen farmworker have reached a plea deal that keeps them out of jail.
A San Joaquin County judge approved the deal Wednesday.
Authorities say Maria Isabel Vasquez Jimenez, 17, died because supervisors denied shade and water as she pruned grapes for nine hours in nearly triple-digit heat.
The supervisors initially were charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Under the deal, the owner of the farm labor company, Maria De Los Angeles Colunga, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of failing to provide shade and must serve 40 hours of community service.
The company's former safety coordinator, Elias Armenta, pleaded guilty to a felony count of failing to follow safety regulations and must do 480 hours of community service.
