MIDLAND - A woman on trial for DWI in Midland ended up on probation after all.

A jury found her guilty on Wednesday.

She was sentenced to 8 years, but put on probation.

An ironic turn of events, since the first jury pool selected to hear her case would not consider giving her probation.

Since she had previous DWI convictions, they felt she should get a harsher punishment.

That jury had to be dismissed, and a new one was found.
