For the stunt, Tarbutton got five years in prison.
Sierra Tarbutton, 27, pleaded guilty to deadly conduct as well as criminal mischief before she was sentenced, Click2Houston reported. She provided “yes” and “no” answers to the judge’s questions.
She admitted to firing a semi-automatic weapon out of a car window as she and Cuellar drove down the road.
Local media outlets dubbed the pair the “Snapchat shooters.”
A judge granted Tarbutton her request to spend Christmas with her family. She doesn’t have to turn herself into officials until January 2, 2018, the report said.
A judge warned her that if she doesn’t come in, authorities will come looking for her.
“There were some abandoned buildings that were alleged to have been shot at, that’s what I’ve heard,” said her attorney during the time of her arrest, KHOU reported.
“I think deadly conduct is overblown.”
Cuellar was described as a local drug dealer and rapper, KHOU reported.
Tarbutton also allegedly threatened a public servant in the past.
