MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Berkeley County woman convicted of violating her black neighbors' civil rights lost her probation.

A circuit judge revoked 39-year-old Kendra N. Sulick's probation and sentenced her to six years in prison Monday. The decision follows Sulick's guilty plea last month to a misdemeanor DUI charge.

Sulick received five years' probation in November after she was convicted of three civil-rights violations. She received a 24-hour jail sentence on the DUI charge with credit for time served. She also was fined $100.

Sulick and co-defendant Bruce A. Poole lived at 45 Wisconsin Lane when they were charged with violating the civil rights of the family of Brian Smith and Betty A. Obiri between December 2007 and April 2009. Sulick and Poole were accused of shouting racial slurs, making loud noises at all hours of the night, driving recklessly near their home and threatening to harm them, according to court records.
