(Newser) – The first five times Rose Ann Davidson got busted for drunken driving, she managed to avoid lengthy prison sentences. Not so on No. 6: The Austin American-Statesman reports that a jury gave the 44-year-old San Marcos woman a life sentence yesterday. Davidson's first conviction came in 1996, and the one that landed her the life sentence occurred last summer. A police officer stopped her for erratic driving on Interstate 35, and the open container of beer in the car didn't help her case. (It makes this 13-year sentence seem like a slap on the wrist.)
