A 29-year-old Billings woman convicted at trial of her fifth drunken-driving offense has been sentenced in Yellowstone County District Court.

Molly Megan Martwig has been ordered to serve 13 months in state custody, followed by three years of probation, for felony DUI. She was also fined $1,000.

Martwig received a recommendation for a state alcohol treatment program, and she was ordered to serve concurrent jail terms for related misdemeanor charges of driving without a valid license and failure to give immediate notice of an accident.

Martwig was convicted at a two-day trial in April. 

The charges stemmed from a one-car crash on Wyoming Avenue on Jan. 7, 2011. Martwig was arrested by officers who found her walking away from the crash.

Officers said the Ford 500 that Martwig was driving struck a tree and came to rest next to curb facing the wrong direction. Martwig's purse, with her identification inside, was found on the passenger seat.
