City News Service says Mary Sharpski of Fountain Valley was sentenced Friday for attempted murder and mayhem after reaching a plea deal last month.
Prosecutors say the 50-year-old mother of three and her lover recruited a hit man who hacked at Frank Sharpski with a machete in 2009. Sharpski survived but lost some fingers and must use a walker.
Twenty-six-year-old Antonio Ortega of Santa Ana is serving 25 years to life for the attack.
Sharpski's former lover, 42-year-old Michael Shores, is facing trial.
A 2011 trial for all three defendants ended in a mistrial.
