Drunk­driver at­tend­scourse

Perthshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A 49-year-old woman, caught driv­ing with al­most SIX times the le­gal al­co­hol limit near a Perthshire pri­mary school, had her sen­tence de­layed this week as she is at­tend­ing a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion course.

Kim Marsh, of Druid’s Park, Murthly, was to have dis­cov­ered her fate on Wednesday, April 11, but that has now been de­ferred un­til May 2.

She ad­mit­ted at an ear­lier hear­ing that on March 12 this year, on the B9099 Stan­ley-Murthly road, near Murthly school, she drove a car with 131 mi­cro­grammes of al­co­hol on her breath. The le­gal limit is 22 mi­cro­grammes. She had an in­terim driv­ing ban im­posed and will dis­cover next month how long she will be off the road.

A pros­e­cu­tion mo­tion to for­feit the ve­hi­cle was also con­tin­ued by Sher­iff Gil­lian Wade un­til next month, when the back­ground to the of­fence will be given.
