SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The woman sentenced to prison time for hitting and killing a man last year could soon be out on bail after being sentenced to 2.5 to 7.5 years behind bars last week.
Traci Briskin is appealing her convictions of second degree manslaughter and DWAI with an appellate court.
Briskin's attorney asked the court to set bail while the appeal is pending.
The judge agreed, setting bail at $75,000. Briskin has not been released yet.
In November of last year, she ran a stop sign, hitting and killing 49-year-old Thomas Baker of Charlton.
In court, Briskin admitted to swerving and taking her eyes off the road while looking for a fallen GPS.
Throughout the trial, she said it was a mistake.
