A former Las Vegas school teacher, who was convicted in a drunk driving crash that injured a teen, was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison Wednesday.
Noel Lardeo was ordered to serve at least 6 years of the sentence.
Lardeo was 26 years old at the time she was behind the wheel of a vehicle that crashed into a bus bench on Spring Mountain Road near El Camino Road on Feb. 5.
Police said a 15-year-old waiting at the bus stop was struck by the vehicle.
According to police, Lardeo was the designated driver of the vehicle that also was occupied by another person. She had failed a sobriety test and admitted to drinking, police said.
Lardeo was also terminated from her position as a teacher at Roger M. Bryan Elementary School following the arrest.
The teen victim in the crash lost a leg as a result of the accident.
Lardeo was credited with 304 days served in jail, according to Clark County Justice Court.
