ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The woman who served time for killing a man with her reckless driving is back in jail, where she will be spending the next nine months.
Miranda Pacheco was on probation for a different charge when she was charged with a DWI last month.
On Wednesday, the widow of the man killed by Pacheco's driving had one message for the judge, Pacheco needs to go back to jail, because enough is enough.
The judge ultimately agreed.
"I don't see why I would not be successful with probation," Pacheco said through tears. "I never had any problems. I've never really been in a whole lot of trouble. My criminal history does not stack up."
Prosecutors disagreed saying Pachecho does have a criminal history that stacks up and she can't stay out of trouble.
Last year, a jury found her guilty of careless driving for serving off Paseo and killing bicyclist David Anderson.
Prosecutors wanted a vehicular homicide conviction.
She served 90 days in jail and was released in January.
In April, she was given 18 months probation for breaking into a car and stealing a purse. She entered a plea deal stemming from a separate burglary charge and was ordered to spend 18 months on probation.
But just weeks later, she was charged with an aggravated DWI and didn't tell her probation officer about the arrest.
Anderson's widow took the stand and asked the judge to send her back to jail.
"I want to go to bed at night and I want to know that she's not out there in the community defying the court again," she said. "She's going to kill somebody else."
In the end, the judge ordered Pacheco to serve 9 months of her probation in jail - and then serve the rest of her probation upon her release.
"It's never been about vengeance, it's never been about punishment. It truly is about hoping that someone through faith can turn their life around," Anderson told News 13.
Pacheco still awaits sentencing for her aggravated DWI charge. She faces up to 90 days in jail.
