HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The girlfriend of the Australian tourist convicted in a deadly jet ski accident is planning to admit she lied to police.

An attorney for Natasha Ryan submitted a written document this morning in court.

The 21-year-old is hoping to avoid jail time in exchange for pleading no contest to lying to police about deleting cellphone video that captured the deadly crash.

Back in August, her boyfriend Tyson Dagley plowed into the back of another jet-ski at Keehi Lagoon killing 16-year-old Kristen Fonseca.

He pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 12 days in jail.

A judge will decide whether to accept Ryan's no contest plea.
