A Bend woman who was high on prescription drugs when she crashed into a home is sentenced to 16 months in prison and loses her license for five years.  The crash happened in March in northeast Bend. Prosecutors say Tamira Julian had just been busted for driving high 2 days earlier. She was sentenced Thursday. It was a close call for the people inside the home. Sarah Clark says she awoke to taillights in her kitchen and feared the car had run over year 8 year old daughter, Brittany.  Brittany was okay; but says it was absolutely frightening and everything was destroyed in her bedroom.  “It was scary- it was really, really scary. I have no bed, no furniture- pretty much nothing in my room.” Our news partner, News Channel 21, was in the courtroom for yesterday's sentencing. Tamira Julian apologized for her actions. Her psychiatrist says that Julian is mentally unstable and reliant on prescription drugs.
