The woman involved in a hit and run that left College student Alex Balluff with permanent brain damage in 2009, was back in court today.

Julie Ann Gronski is accused of probation violations including speeding and applying for a Wisconsin Driver's License without revealing required information about her probation in February.

The prosecution says Gronski broke her probation by going to Wisconsin without permission, obtaining a license with false information, and driving recklessly, going 51 in a 30 mile per hour zone.

Today the judge made his final decision giving Gronski 60 days in jail with work release to continue her financial obligation.
The Balluff family says they are heartbroken by the decision.

"I'm just so sad. The egregiousness of what she did and the second chance she had and she blew it. So I'm more worried and more upset about our friends, our family that send their kids up here to college," Debbie Balluff said.

Judge Floerke ordered a review hearing for June 27th. Gronski will go back on probation after her jail–time is served.
