A Nocona woman is sentenced to prison time for causing a pin-in wreck while she was driving drunk.

Tisha Malacusky was found guilty of intoxicated assault with a vehicle and is sentenced to eight years in prison.

She'll get 529 days credit for time already served in jail while she was awaiting trial.

Police say Malacusky was intoxicated when she caused an April 2012 wreck just west of Tanglewood on Seymour Highway.

They say she was driving a Toyota Tundra pick-up eastbound and struck a vehicle driven by Sheila Lueck.

Lueck was hospitalized with serious injuries she sustained in that crash.

Wichita County Prosecutor James Suter says it was also determined that Malacusky's vehicle was considered a deadly weapon and that will affect her punishment.

Because of that determination, she'll have to serve at least half of her sentence before she's eligible for parole.

Had that determination not been made, Malacusky would have been eligible for parole after one-quarter of her sentence was served.
