A Lemon Grove woman, sentenced last month to nearly 11 years in prison for killing two bicyclists in Lakeside while driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, received another six-month sentence Thursday for a drunk-driving conviction.
San Diego Municipal Court Judge Janet I. Kintner imposed an 18-month sentence on Monica Rusconi, 26, for misdemeanor drunk driving, driving with a revoked license and possession of a controlled substance.
"A prison sentence probably is the best thing because it's obvious that through the years nothing else has gotten your attention," Kintner told Rusconi, who has three previous drunk-driving convictions.
"It's unfortunate you have the problems you do, but when you get behind the wheel you start involving others in your problems. A prison sentence will be your best chance to get away from these problems."
