ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A woman with an advance stage liver cancer has been ordered to report to jail after officials say she violated parole by getting arrested for pulling her adult daughter’s hair during a fight.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that once 45-year-old Sabrina Orbera is released from the hospital, she’ll await a parole violation decision in jail.

A medical release from prison in December cut short Orbera’s 15-year DUI manslaughter sentence. She’d been incarcerated since 2006 after pleading guilty in a crash that killed a 38-year-old woman.

After Orbera’s Feb. 3 arrest, the Florida Commission on Offender Review denied her request to stay home during the review.

Attorney Jim Lewis says Orbera is dying and it’s not right to jail her. He’s asking the state attorney’s office not to file charges.
