Meyers was behind the wheel of a GMC Envoy. Medina was driving a smaller Honda Accord in the accident in April, 2008 along Buffaloe Road.
Medina died at the scene. His young son later died at the hospital. He was a third grader at Rolesville Elementary School. Medina's 4-year-old daughter and another man were also hurt in the head-on collision.
In court Monday, a judge sentenced Meyers to 13 years in prison - the minimum sentence.
Prosecutors read a letter from Medina's wife in court.
"I lost a beautiful son and a great husband," she wrote.
The prosecutor became emotional when he described bow Medina had to pick out a coffin for her young son. Meyer's also spoke - apologizing to the family.
"She can't hate me more than I hate myself for what happened. And I am sorry," she said.
Meyers told investigators she had taken a sleeping pill and drank three 16-ounce ice beers the afternoon of the wreck. She had been cited for DWI just five months earlier.
She pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, and DWI.
