Lakeisha Nicole Holloway, the woman accused of driving through a crowd of people on the Las Vegas strip in December, killing one and injuring 35 others, now faces 71 charges. According to the Clark County district attorney's office Holloway had earlier be

A 24-year-old mother accused of intentionally driving her car into a crowd of pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip last month faces nearly 1,000 years in prison, according to TIME.

The driver, Lakeisha Holloway, has been hit with a total of 71 charges, prosecutors said Wednesday, adding up to more than a millennium worth of jail time,” the report says. One person was killed and dozens more were injured in the incident, which occurred with her 3-year-old daughter in the car.

[She] now faces additional charges after the fatal crash in Nevada on Dec. 20, 2015, according to the Clark County District Attorney. The new charges now reflect her “intentional injury” of 35 people, including nearly a dozen who suffered “substantial bodily harm,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo said in a statement, and she could be sentenced to over 1,000 years in prison if convicted.

“These charges will ensure the protection of our community from the defendant for a very long time,” DiGiacomo said.

Holloway also faces child abuse charges after allegedly striking an 11-year-old with her vehicle while her 3-year-old daughter was sitting in the backseat, authorities said. She was previously charged with murder, child abuse and felony hit-and-run, the Associated Press reported at the time. Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson had previously said prosecutors were considering additional charges.

Considering the sentence for Ethan Couch, best known as the “affluenza teen,” Holloway’s projected jail time raises serious questions about the criminal justice system.

Couch at the age of 16 received ten years of probation for a 2013 drunk driving crash that killed four people. Last year, he fled to Mexico with his mother, a violation of his parole. Authorities are still awaiting his extradition.
