    A Brooklyn woman has been charged with criminally negligent homicide for allegedly causing a fatal accident while texting and driving.      

    Prosecutors say 19-year-old Nechama Rothenberger was indicted Monday in the death of Tian Sheng Lin on Sept. 19.      

    The 53-year-old restaurant owner and deliveryman was riding his scooter and was stopped at a red light at the time.      

    Rothenberger's attorney, Jeffrey Schwartz, said he hoped to resolve the case in a way that doesn't destroy Rothenberger's future.      

    If convicted, she faces four years in prison.
