The University of Miami student facing DUI manslaughter charges in a fatal crash in Coral Gables is hoping a judge will let her perform community service at the Ultra Music Festival.

The attorney for Ivanna Villanueva, 19, filed a motion in Miami-Dade court Friday requesting Villanueva serve out community service hours at the popular outdoor electronic music fest later this month.

Villanueva attends Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School, which will be servicing Ultra attendees, her attorney said. The three-day festival takes place March 23, 24 and 25 at downtown Miami's Bicentennial Park.

A judge will decide on March 20 whether to allow the request.

Police say Villanueva was intoxicated and driving recklessly when she struck 68-year-old Eyder Ayala's Ford with her Audi in the southbound lanes of LeJeune Road near Majorca Avenue just after 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 2, 2011.

Ayala was killed at the scene. Villanueva wasn't injured, police said.

A toxicology report showed the University of Miami student had a blood alcohol level of .231, nearly triple Florida legal limit of .08, police said.
