(Murray-AP) -- The verdict is in for a former Salt Lake County deputy accused of rushing to a call without her lights on and slamming into another car, killing a teenager.

Officer Carla Redding was found guilty on all three misdemeanor charges of negligent homicide, negligent collision and speeding.

The June 2002 accident killed 19-year-old Mallory Hilton.

Prosecutors say the accident was the result of excessive speed and Redding's failure to use flashing lights and sirens as a warning as she rushed to assist another officer.

Redding now works for the Murray police department but it's not known what her status is because of the guilty verdict.

Redding could face 21 months in jail and a 42-hundred dollar fine.

She's scheduled to be sentenced August 23.
