BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A woman who admitted hitting two women with her car, then leaving the scene is heading to prison.
It was an emotional day in court for the two victims and their family members.
Andrea Glinski explained, "I will spend the rest of my life feeling remorse and praying that someday you will forgive me."
An emotional Glinski apologized to Amy Stewart and Rachel Baird, the two college students she ran down near last March near Daemen College.
Glinski pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an incident and admitted she tried to cover up the crime by bringing her car to a mechanic days later.
"I wish I could take it back. I know I should have stopped. And to do it over again I would do everything so different," she explained.
The 32 year old faced up to four years in prison.
She sat emotionless as Judge Thomas Franczyk sentenced her to one to three years.
Judge Franczyk remarked, "In her behavior, she did not show character, nor did she show compassion or courage to face up to what she had done."
Glinski's victims said they will live a life sentence.
Rachel Baird said, "Although this crime has left me with significant life lasting injuries and a total lifestyle readjustment, I do not feel negative feelings toward the perpetrator."
The brother of 23 year old, Amy Stewart read her statement for her since her traumatic brain injury affected her speech.
"I do not care if Miss Glinski was in a state of shock at the time of the incident. That does not warrant her actions. I'm pretty sure I was in a state of shock when I woke up from a coma," he read.
Annemarie Stewart, Amy's mother exclaimed, "Her crime almost took Amy's body, but she could not touch her spirit. Amy is strong. She's a fighter and she had the will to live."
Glinski's passenger, John Pieri, is facing a misdemeanor charge of criminal solicitation.
He's accused of encouraging her to leave the scene.
Glinski's court appearances are far from over.
Both victims have filed civil law suits.
