LIMA — A Lima woman who ran down a bicyclist with her vehicle earlier this year was sentenced to four years in prison Thursday in Allen County Common Pleas Court.
Vonda Gilbert was sentenced by Judge David Cheney after pleading guilty in late September to a charge of felonious assault, a second-degree felony. Her plea was part of an agreement with prosecutors which called for one misdemeanor charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle to be dismissed.
Gilbert, 54, was indicted in June by an Allen County grand jury and entered a written plea of not guilty by reason of insanity in July. She was subsequently found competent to stand trial following a court-ordered psychological evaluation.
