The woman charged with the death of a Metro Nashville Police Department officer appeared in court and accepted a plea agreement.

During her appearance in court on Tuesday, Juli Glisson pleaded guilty and accepted a plea agreement to serve 12 years at 30 percent.

Originally in August 2017, an attorney entered a not guilty plea at an arraignment for Glisson.

By accepting the agreement and pleading guilty Tuesday, the judge told Glisson she was waiving her right to a jury trial. She will also be prohibited from driving for at least ten years.

Glisson was originally charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication and three counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.

She pled guilty to the first count, and the other three were dismissed.

Glisson was reportedly drunk when she parked on the edge of a boat ramp threatening suicide at the time of the police response in February 2017.

The car rolled into the water, and Officer Eric Mumaw slipped and died trying to save her.

Glisson has been facing aggravated vehicular homicide charges in his death.
