FARMINGTON — The woman who was shot in the eye in November by a Morgan County deputy sheriff received three years’ probation at her sentencing on Monday.

Kristine Nicole Biggs, 41, appeared in 2nd District Court, wearing a patch over her left eye.

Biggs’ attorney Michael Edwards told Judge Michael Allphin that his client is facing substantial medical costs as a result of the shooting. That shooting happened in South Weber after a 32-mile chase through Morgan County into Davis County. It was ruled unjustified by the Davis County Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors agreed with the sentence, telling the judge that if Biggs were sentenced to jail, it could cost the taxpayers $30,000 to $50,000 in medical bills because of the treatment she will need.

Biggs pleaded guilty in January to one third-degree felony count of failure to stop or respond to the command of a police officer, and a class B misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.

She moved to California in January to be close to family. Allphin said that if California authorities and Adult Probation and Parole approve it, she could serve her probation there.

He also stayed the mandatory $1,500 fine for her DUI conviction until after her probation was completed.
