20-year-old Monalisa Perez hit the headlines back in June when she and partner Pedro Ruiz chose to film a unsafe stunt involving a gun that accidentally resulted in his death.
At the time of the shooting, Perez was pregnant with the couple's second child.
The couple's three-year-old child was among the 30 onlookers who watched the stunt, which was captured by two cameras, unfold.
The sentence could have been more severe, but Norman County Attorney James Brue said it fitted the circumstances for the 20-year-old mother. She may then serve the balance of her sentence via electronic home monitoring, Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports.
"Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most unsafe videos ever", Perez wrote on Twitter prior to performing the stunt.
In addition to the jail sentence, Perez is banned from owning a firearm and can not sell the story of the shooting, according to the Star Tribune. Family members from both side say the intend on making statements in court Wednesday and several of them are "in support" of the proposed sentencing. The book, which was 1.5 inches thick, was unable to stop the bullet and fatally wounded Ruiz.
Perez, though, forwarded the idea just hours before the shooting on Twitter.
Numerous videos featured the couple doing "pranks", "stunts", and "challenges" and some videos featured their three-year-old daughter.
According to the woman, the whole YouTube stunt was her boyfriend's idea and that she agreed to do it after the man reassured her that it's totally safe.
The couple's YouTube channel is still active and its videos have accumulated 5.3million views. In one such video taken at a fair, Ruiz talks excitedly about someday reaching 300,000 followers.
On that day Perez fired a powerful Desert Eagle handgun from close range, as Ruiz held an encyclopaedia in front of his chest. The state has been experimenting with allowing judges to make the call, and The Forum joined with other news outlets in asking for access.
