From the Huffington Post:
Two California farm supervisors charged in the heat-related death of a pregnant teen farmworker reached a plea deal Wednesday and were sentenced to community service and probation, angering farmworker advocates who had called for jail time.
The supervisors initially were charged with involuntary manslaughter in the nation's first criminal case involving the heat-related death of a farmworker.
California introduced the first heat regulations in the nation in 2005 to protect the state's 450,000 seasonal workers, but advocates said the rules were routinely violated.
Authorities said Maria Isavel Vasquez Jimenez, 17, died in 2008 because supervisors denied her shade and water as she pruned grapes for nine hours in nearly triple-digit heat in a San Joaquin County vineyard. The teenager was two months pregnant.
