(MISSOULA)- The woman charged with running over a Missoula police officer will spend 30 years in the Montana State Women's Prison.
Dawnette Eaton was sentenced Tuesday afternoon in Missoula District Court for running down Missoula Police officer Deni Poling.
Earlier this month, Eaton plead guilty to failing to remain at an accident scene where a person is seriously injured, and not guilty to assault with a weapon.
The incident happened January 7th, when Eaton ran over Poling in a McDonald's parking lot during an arrest.
Another Missoula police officer shot her in the arm to get her to stop.
