TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A woman is facing 4 years in jail and 2 years on probation after being sentenced Wednesday for a July 2012 wreck that resulted in the loss of a motorcyclist's leg.
Fifty-five-year-old Laura Fogleman of Lafayette was sentenced by Tippecanoe County judge Michael Morrissey to 6 years for her part in a crash on July 3, 2012, in the 6600 block of State Road 25.
Last July Fogleman told investigators she was turning into a driveway in order to turn around on State Road 25 near Americus.
She collided with a motorcycle, driven by 52-year-old Randall Kesling.
Part of Kesling's leg was amputated as a result of the crash.
According to court documents Fogleman's blood alcohol content was 0.11.
Fogleman pleaded guilty May 2 to operating while intoxicating causing serious bodily injury (OWI-SBI) – along with being a habitual substance offender.
The judge gave Fogleman 3 years on the OWI-SBI, enhanced by 3 years for being a habitual substance offender.
She's also sentenced to court-imposed standard probation terms, including $164,051.64 in restitution to the victim, Kesling, and several other processes such as drug/alcohol treatment and license suspension.
