BELTON, Texas (KWTX) A woman who earlier pleaded no contest to a criminally negligent homicide charge in the death of a local tow truck driver was sentenced to five years deferred adjudication probation Tuesday.

Sybil Warrick was sentenced in the 264th District Courty by Judge Paul LePak.

If she successfully completes the term of probation, the conviction won’t appear on her record.

The victim's family was present in the courtroom during the sentencing.

Warrick was indicted on May 2, 2018 for criminally negligent homicide in Scott Bowle's death.

The 39-year-old tow truck driver was working along U.S. Highway 190 on May 11, 2017 when officials said a minivan struck him and amputated his leg.

Bowles was taken to Seton Medical Center in Harker Heights where he later died.

Warrick was later arrested in Fort Smith, Ark. on a Bell County warrant.

She was returned to Bell County to face the charge.
