The charges stem from an incident in January where Carver shot a person with a sawed-off rifle. The charge of aggravated battery normally carries a three year prison sentence, but her sentence was enhanced one year because she used a rifle in the shooting.

Aggravated battery is considered a serious violent offense, so Carver is required to serve at least 85 percent of the sentence.
