WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita woman has received probation for a drunken-driving crash that killed her 6-year-old son in January.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/17bdnyF ) prosecutors and defense lawyers all recommended the sentence for 31-year-old Crystal Ross.

Ross pleaded guilty earlier to involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence. The charge is punishable by up to 3{ years in prison.

Sedgwick County District Judge Ben Burgess agreed to the probation Wednesday but warned Ross that a single traffic infraction will put her behind bars.

The accident that killed 6-year-old Cryisol Hall happened Jan. 26 when Ross lost control of her SUV and skidded into a ditch. Ross and her two other sons were injured.
