WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) - A Lake County judge has refused to reduce the prison sentence of a suburban Chicago woman convicted of killing a 5-year-old girl while driving under the influence.

Judge James Booras on Wednesday refused to give 20-year-old Carly Rousso credit for 99 days against her prison sentence for stays at three drug treatment centers.

Booras noted Rousso voluntarily entered the facilities after violating her bond.

Defense attorney Jed Stone argued Rousso deserved credit for the time she spent in each facility. He said all three prevent patients from leaving while undergoing treatment.

Rousso was sentenced to five years in prison for driving onto a Highland Park sidewalk after inhaling computer dust cleaner and killing Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento. The girl’s mother and two infant brothers were injured, but survived the September 2012 incident.
