PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) - A woman who threw a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech the former secretary of state gave in Las Vegas last year has been sentenced to a year of federal supervision in her home state of Arizona.

Ernst's public defender, William Carrico, says a judge on Monday also ordered the 37-year-old to undergo mental health treatment at the discretion of probation officials.

The shoe she threw at Clinton during the speech in Las Vegas missed, and Ernst walked away with her hands in the air and immediately surrendered to authorities.

Ernest was not a credentialed conference attendee.

Residents in a Peoria neighborhood said they saw federal agents on their block even before the shoe-throwing incident.

"At one point, Secret Service did approach my wife asking her if we knew who she was," said neighbor Jaime Beck. "This was before the shoe incident and I don't really know who she is, but I know she is not in this area."

Carrico says Ernst has a history of mental illness and attention-getting incidents.

One involved a pill bottle thrown over the White House fence. Another involved allegations that Ernst made a bomb threat on a flight to Qatar.
