SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Sevier County woman will spend the next three decades behind bars for a vehicular homicide on New Year's Day, 2009.
Deborah Gibson, 30, pleaded guilty Tuesday in a Sevier County court. She was sentenced to 15 years for vehicular homicide by intoxication, and 8 years each on vehicular assault and reckless aggravated assault.
Officials say forensic testing showed Gibson was under the influence of pharmaceuticals when she crashed into the Wilson family of South Carolina and Indiana.
Carolyn Wilson was killed in the crash. Her son Stephen suffered life-threatening injuries, and her husband Larry and daughter-in-law, Marlena, were also injured.
