An alleged mistress of famed golfer, Tiger Woods, has been sentenced to serve one year in county jail as a result of a sentence to DUI. Mindy Lawton was sentenced earlier today in connection to a no contest plea to a 2008 Orlando DUI charge. As a condition of her plea, Ms. Lawton was also sentenced to 5 years supervised probation in Orange County, Florida.
In 2009, Lawton told the tabloid “News of the World” that her affair with the then-world’s No. 1 golfer ended shortly before the birth of Woods’ daughter, Sam, in 2007. “I met Tiger in 2006 when I was working at Perkins as a manager,” Lawton said. Lawton went into graphic detail about her alleged relationship with Woods. Claims of affairs involving Woods came to light after he crashed his SUV outside his Isleworth home the day after Thanksgiving in 2009. He later apologized for his “trangressions.”
