Sacramento Superior Court Judge Gary E. Ransom imposed the term on Lisa Gargano, 39, who pleaded no contest in June to two counts of driving under the influence of prescription drugs.
Gargano was on pain killers and other medications at the time of the Sept. 6, 2009, collision that resulted in the injury to the woman in the coffee shop on Duckhorn Drive. Her attorney, Michael Bowman, said she began taking the pain killers as a result of a lower-back injury suffered in her deputy's job.
Free on bail after the Starbucks collision, Gargano rear-ended a driver in another accident on Feb. 5, 2010. She has been in custody in lieu of $750,000 bail since then. She will receive credit for her time served.
