JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Wednesday's injunction will not affect those granted clemency such as Karen Irby.

The Jackson socialite, was granted conditional clemency provided she serve 3-years house arrest and an additional two years under the supervision of MDOC's Community Corrections Division.

Irby remains in corrections custody Wednesday night.

Irby, after admitting she had consumed two glasses of wine, was convicted on two counts of manslaughter after a fiery crash in February 2009 that killed doctors Mark Pogue and Lisa Dedousis.

They were killed when a black Mercedes, driven by Irby, crashed head-on into a truck driven by Pogue.
