ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque woman convicted of hitting a pedestrian while driving drunk was sentenced Thursday to just one year behind bars.
Police say two-and-a-half years ago, Jessica Lucero hit a man crossing Coors, then took off.
The then 23-year-old stopped a short while later. That’s when a Good Samaritan noticed Lucero’s damaged car.
Lucero took off again, but the witness gave police her licence plate number and police tracked her down.
Back in August, a jury found Lucero guilty of homicide by vehicle, leaving the scene and DWI.
Lucero’s sentence also includes five years of supervised probation.
