(WUSA9) -- The woman who faced charges in the December death of a Prince William County Police officer will not have to serve jail time.
A judge gave 70-year-old Margaret Anne Luecke a 12-month suspended sentence in connection to the death of Officer Chris Yung. She will have to serve a year of probation and perform 200 hours of community service. She also had her license suspended for several months and was fined $2,500.
Lueke, of Gainesville, pleaded no contest to reckless driving in the death of 35-year-old Officer Chris Yung, a Prince William County motorcycle police officer. In the afternoon of December 31st, 2012, Yung was heading to scene of an accident Lueke made a left turn and pulled in front of Yung's motorcycle.
"This was a tragic accident and I grieve for him since the day it happened," said Lueke as she came out of the probation office Monday.
Officer Yung's motorcycle was going more than 70 miles per hour with its lights and sirens on. Lueke had a solid green, not a green arrow. She didn't see or hear the motorcycle and took the turn. Her daughter who was with her didn't see the motorcycle either until the last moment.
"She's had a perfect driving record for 30 years. Not even a speeding ticket. This was just something out of the blue. We grieve and pray for the Yung family every day," said Admiral Mike Lueke, Margaret's husband.
Yung's widow agreed to the sentence, but his father, Edward Yung did not.
"She said she didn't see the lights, what if she does it again and kills someone else?" he said.
Edward Yung said as parents, they felt left out of the process.
Even though the Lueke's apparently apologized to Chris Yung's widow, Edward Young said "We never did get an apology."
His wife is left with sleepless nights remembering the last time she saw her son dead in the hospital.
"I saw Chris not moving. They told me he died one hour ago," Jennifer Yung cried as she recalled that tragic day on New Years Eve.
