FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — The father of a Fresno woman convicted of shooting and wounding her parents says he forgives her and loves her.

A tearful Steve Alarcon spoke on Tuesday during a hearing for his daughter, 26-year-old Lisa. A judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison.

According to The Fresno Bee, Lisa Alarcon said she was sorry that she hurt her parents and also loved them.

She was accused of shooting into her parents' home while they slept in August 2012, leaving them with gunshot wounds to their legs.

Prosecutors said she was spiraling out of control from drug use.

The case ended in a mistrial, but Alarcon pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted murder in March as a second trial was approaching.
