A 27-year-old Clovis woman was sentenced Wednesday for battery upon a health-care worker.

Crystal Sandoval was found guilty last week of the fourth-degree felony and sentenced to 90 days in the Curry County Adult Detention Center, according to a release from the 9th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

The charge stems from a January incident in which Sandoval spit blood and saliva in a paramedic’s face during an injured subject call, according to the release.

Teddy Hartley presided over the trial.

Following jail time, Sandoval will also serve 15 months probation, the release said.
