Layla Maria Lugo, 25, accepted terms of three years probation from San Diego Superior Court Judge Laura Halgren. Her attorney said Lugo wants to return to Pennsylvania where she is from.
Lugo received jail credits of 177 days including time off for good behavior in the Feb. 8 incident in a Point Loma house near Liberty Station.
Deputy District Attorney Allen Brown said the victim, a 30-year-old man, suffered serious injuries when the glass drug device broke apart on the man’s body. He was taken to the UC San Diego Medical Center for treatment.
There was no restitution order seeking money from Lugo on replacing the glass bong or for any medical expenses to the victim. Brown said in court he was not opposed to Lugo receiving probation or being released.
Lugo pleaded guilty April 11 to felony assault, and a second assault charge involving great bodily injury was dismissed.
Her attorney, Lindsey Willard, told the judge Lugo completed some training courses while in the Las Colinas Women’s Detention Facility and a copy of a certificate she earned was sent to Halgren.
Lugo is from Pennsylvania and she wants to return there “to get her life back on track,” said Willard.
Halgren said relocating to Pennsylvania was a good idea as long as she receives approval from the probation department. She suspended payment of the court fines for six months.
Lugo fled after the 2:20 p.m. incident, but police officers arrested her about two blocks from Nimitz Boulevard and Rosecrans Street.
