LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas first-grade teacher has been sentenced to six to 15 years in prison after a bus stop crash in February that left a 15-year-old boy without a leg.

The judge ordered the sentence Wednesday for 26-year-old Noel Lardeo, who pleaded guilty in September to felony drunken driving. Court officials say she'll get credit for 304 days she's already served.

The teen, Conan Obenchain, testified earlier this year that he doesn't remember the early morning crash Feb. 5 alongside a busy street several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Prosecutors allege Lardeo was drunk when her 2005 Acura slammed into the bench where the teen was sitting.
