Fine, probation for drunk driver
A 27-year-old woman who was found with alcohol in her vehicle was recently fined $1,000 for failing the breathalyzer. Amanda Bettyanne Deagle appeared before Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where she entered a guilty plea.
The court heard that on June 30 the police responded to several complaints of a possible impaired driver involving the same vehicle. Deagle later provided breathalyzer samples that were above the legal limit. Defence lawyer Thane MacEachern said Deagle accepted responsibility and was working on addictions-related issues.
Along with the fine, Deagle will be on probation for nine months, which included a condition she follow any counselling or treatment as directed.
Deagle must also pay a $300 victim surcharge and is banned from driving for one year.
