Rochester, N.Y. -- Megan Merkel has been found not guilty of manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter in the death of Fairport High School teacher Heather Boyum.
Merkel was found guilty, however, of DWI (a misdemeanor) and unlicensed operation of a vehicle, along with operating a vehicle with inadequate brakes.
Following the verdict, the judge asked a tearful Merkel to stay out of trouble. She said she understood.
Merkel will be released from jail Monday evening, on the basis of time already served.
Jim Hinman, Merkel's attorney, says he can't control everything Merkel does, but "I would be surprised if she is driving without a license any time soon."
A separate jury in the trail of Mark Scerbo is still deliberating. If convicted, Scerbo could face up to 25 years in jail.
