A 33-year-old Quincy woman has been convicted of drunken driving for crashing her car into a motorcyclist in 2008, inflicting such severe injuries that the lower part of the man's leg had to be amputated, prosecutors said.
Marybeth Frisoli was convicted today of operating under the influence, with negligence, resulting in serious bodily injury, Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating said in a statement.
The crash happened on the Neponset Bridge in August 2008, he said.
Frisoli was ordered to return to Norfolk Superior Court at 9 a.m. Thursday for sentencing. She faces a minimum sentence of six months and a maximum sentence of 10 years.
Frisoli is a Boston Juvenile Court probation officer, the Patriot Ledger of Quincy reported Tuesday.
Frisoli's attorney, Daniel W. O'Malley didn't immediately return a message seeking comment this evening.
