The woman accused of kicking a Pima County Sheriff's deputy in the face was arraigned today. 
 
Earlier this month deputies were investigating a DUI when investigators say Yesennia Gonzalez kicked Sergeant Mark Bustamante in the eye causing him to lose it.
 
 
Today in court, Gonzalez's secured bond was reduced to $25,000.     
 
The judge said Gonzalez doesn't have a criminal history.
 
If she makes bond she will be released, but under strict conditions -- she would be subject to random alcohol and drug tests.
 
Gonzalez is facing charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, and resisting arrest.
     
If convicted, she could face at least 10.5 years in prison.
 
Gonzalez has another hearing January 26th at 8:30a.m..
