The Albuquerque Journal reports that Carol Svinarich apologized to 55-year-old cyclist Scott "Dwane" Lane's widow at a sentencing hearing Friday, but Lane's widow says the apology was a ploy to get a less severe sentence.
Svinarich was ordered to pay a $300 fine and $17,560 restitution to the family for medical and other costs.
She had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of careless driving.
Svinarich also will be required to wear an ankle bracelet that can sense alcohol from perspiration during her home arrest.
She was arrested Aug. 20 for first-offense driving while intoxicated.
