Ga. woman sentenced for running over ex-boyfriend

ATLANTA — A 28-year-old Douglas County woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for intentionally running over her ex-boyfriend.

WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/SHKip1 ) reports Vanessa Garrett-Rogers, of Hiram, was sentenced Monday and was ordered to pay over $57,000 in restitution.

Garrett-Rogers, a mother of two, is out on bond and is scheduled to begin her prison sentence Jan. 2.
