78 Year Old Woman Gets 10 Years Prison Time in DUI Death

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A 78-year-old woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for a drunk driving crash that killed a North Carolina man during Bike Week.
Judge Leah R. Case noted during a sentencing hearing on Wednesday that Barbara Dunn of Chatham, Mass., had no criminal record. But the judge said Dunn -- who had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit -- apparently has a drinking problem. The judge revoked Dunn's driver's license for the rest of her life.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Dunn struck and killed 64-year-old Charles Bixler of Concord, N.C., on March 17, 2012. Two other bikers were forced off the road and injured.
Dunn expressed remorse and told the judge she's not had a drink since the crash.
