YouTuber Who Shot Boyfriend To Death In Video Gets Jail Sentence

Sentencing awaits 20-year-old mom who killed boyfriend during YouTube stunt

An American YouTube vlogger who accidentally shot her boyfriend to death while filming a stunt for her YouTube channel has been sentenced to six months in prison.

Before the tragedy occurred, the camera can be seen panning towards Perez who explained to the couple's YouTube subscribers what she and Pedro were about to do.

As part of a plea agreement MonaLisa plead guilty to manslaughter and was ordered to serve a staggered 90 day staggered jail sentence over the next 3 years, meaning she can pick the time behind bars at her leisure.

She has also been permanently banned from owning firearms.

The pair had shot prank videos for publication on Youtube in the past and, before the shooting, Perez had tweeted: "Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most risky videos ever".

Perez, who retains custody of their two small children, will serve her six-month term 30 days per year for the next three years and then become eligible to serve the rest on electronic home monitoring, as long as she abides by the terms of her 10-year supervised probation.

The last moments of the video show Perez pointing the gun at her boyfriend's chest and firing a single round.

But prosecutors have focused on women whose allegations follow a pattern of mentorship, followed by drugging and sexual assault. Johnson also is included in the list of other accusers that prosecutors can call to testify at the upcoming retrial.

Their YouTube channel, which is still live, consists of videos showing the couple doing various pranks and stunts.

In court, Ruiz' aunt Paulita Ruiz told Perez, "You took him away from us, Mona".

Monaliza Perez and former boyfriend Pedro Ruiz.

"We had talked about this resolution (with Ruiz's relatives), and they indicated they were in support of it", Brue added. The video of the shooting was never uploaded and was submitted as evidence to law enforcement. The judge said he would say next week whether it would be made publicly available.

In what might seem a weird approach to a United Kingdom audience, the judge told Perez she could serve her time in 10-day increments over the next three years. A trial may have resulted in ten years in prison with a $20,000 fine.

Prosecutors said it was clear that the idea for the stunt came from Ruiz, which was the reason for the short sentence. The state has been experimenting with allowing judges to make the call, and The Forum joined with other news outlets in asking for access.
