A high school teacher who shot a student in the back for parking in front of her house has been sentenced to five years in jail by a regional court.
Mária M., 50, was found guilty of attempting to murder Marián J., 17, in November 2000 after a group of teenage boys parked a car preventing access to her garage, and then became involved in a fight with her husband. The defendant has said she will appeal.
