Drunk-Driving Mom Who Was Free on Bond Pleads Guilty to DUI
Posted on Jul 14, 2010
A 22 year-old South Dakota woman yesterday pled guilty to first-offense DUI and reckless driving stemming from an accident on July 10. It was her 2nd DUI charge in a week, and happened when she was free on bond from the first DUI charge. The young driver ran a red light on July 3, with children in her car.
On July 10, she drove her vehicle into oncoming traffic, striking a van and plummeting down a 65-foot hill. Her 4 year-old and 1 year-old were in the car, but did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
She has not yet been sentenced for either incident.
