A woman who crashed into two other vehicles while driving drunk on Interstate 25 last year was sentenced Monday to 90 days in jail and five years of probation.

Leela Perez, 28, had a blood alcohol content of 0.20, more than twice the legal threshold for for driving, when she collided with the two vehicles March 4, 2013, while heading south in a northbound lane of I-25 between Eldorado and Santa Fe. One vehicle she hit was carrying a pregnant woman whose baby had to be delivered in an emergency C-section after the crash.

    Do I ever agree. What a light sentence! She's going to be trouble down the road unless carefully watched. Wonder if the fact she came out of "Santa Fe Prep" as opposed to being a regular person from a working class background had anything to do with it!
