The 1960s-era Playboy Playmate was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in prison after pleading no contest to attempted voluntary manslaughter in the 2010 shooting of her husband, Bruce Rathgeb, E! News confirmed Wednesday.

Rathgeb, 66, also must pay $70,000 to California's victims restitution fund.

Not very groovy of her to shoot a man, was it?

Her rationale or lack thereof isn't clear, but, according to authorities, Victoria shot Bruce in the back while they were both under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine. She at first told police that a drug dealer had pulled the trigger.

The model and actress was originally charged with attempted murder and, if convicted, would have faced the possibility of much more time behind bars.

Rathgeb was going by Angela Dorian back in 1968, when Hugh Hefner deemed her Playmate of the Year.
