Jury Decides Punishment For Lufkin Woman

by Christa Lollis

It took a jury about 5 hours to sentence Sabrina Dykes, the Lufkin woman who was convicted yesterday of aggravated assault.

She got 10-years probation for the assault, and 180-days in state jail for criminal negligent homicide. She also received 5-months in county jail for failure to stop and render assistance. All of these will be served concurrently.

Dykes was involved in a 2006 accident that killed Jeff Myrick. Dykes ran a stop sign at 20-21 and highway 59 north and hit Myrick who was driving a motorcyle.
