Woman gets 8 years for third-strike DWI

An Ellis County jury Wednesday sentenced Waxahachie woman Kristi Dawn Barrett, 35, to eight years in prison for her third DWI offense.
According to a release from the Ellis County & District Attorney’s office, Barrett was driving erratically at 8:40 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2014 in the 600 block of Farley Street before she crashed her vehicle into a ditch.
Witnesses came to her aid and later testified that she pleaded with them to take the alcoholic beverages she had in her vehicle, according to the release. One witness testified that Barrett asked them to say they were driving instead of her. The witness called 911, so Barrett fled the scene.
