A Delaware woman has been sentenced to one year in prison after she was found guilty of two counts of aggravated vehicular assault and a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence in a jury trial in March.

Misty Marie Moore, 38, formerly of 239 Niatross Place, Delaware, appeared in Delaware County Common Pleas Court June 10 and was sentenced by visiting Judge Timothy Campbell, a retired judge from Greene County.

After a bench trial in March, Moore was found guilty of two counts of aggravated vehicular assault, a third-degree and fourth-degree felony; and a count of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Campbell sentenced Moore to serve 12 months in prison for each aggravated vehicular assault charge and 180 days in the Delaware County Jail. However, Campbell said the terms would be served concurrently.

Moore was taken into custody Friday and began serving her sentence. She was still in the Delaware County Jail Thursday, awaiting transport to prison.

Moore was given three years of post-release probation.

Prosecutors said the charges stem from a Feb. 4 crash on Hyatts Road in Liberty Township that involved two other vehicles.

“On-scene law enforcement smelled alcohol and observed Ms. Moore appeared disoriented and had slurred speech,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien.

Prosecutors said the drivers of the other two vehicles were injured. Their injuries included back and neck pain, a broken toe and fractured vertebrae.

Moore was not injured.
