Sentencing Set For Woman Involved In Road-Rage Shooting

Posted: Updated:
The woman at the center of the road-rage shooting involving a San Diego police officer is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.

Rachel Silva has pleaded guilty to felony child endangerment and misdemeanor DUI in connection with the incident.

Prosecutors say Silva had a blood alcohol level of 0.15 when she rammed a car in an Oceanside parking lot in 2008.

The driver of that car, San Diego Police Officer Frank White, opened fire and shot Silva and her son.

White was acquitted of weapons charges in June 2009.

Silva could face up to four years in prison.
