NAPLES, Fla. An East Naples woman convicted on a DUI manslaughter charge was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years in state prison.

Jacqueline Kay Ribes, 60, was found guilty in the death of 67-year-old cyclist Werner Gattinger, who died a month after the December 2014 collision from the injuries he suffered.

Ribes was also convicted for DUI property damage.

The Cadillac that Ribes drove swerved and went off Gulfshore Boulevard near the 1900 block, striking Gattinger as he rode along the roadside, a witness told the Naples Police Department. An imprint of the bicycle’s tires was found on the front of Ribes’ car, and she failed a field sobriety test.
