A 49-year-old woman, whose car ended up in a five-foot ditch near a Perthshire primary school while she was almost six times the legal booze limit, has admitted another drink/ driving offence.
Kim Marsh, of Druid’s Park, Murthly, will be sentenced for the second incident on July 18 after background reports have been prepared.
She admitted failing to give a specimen of breath for analysis at Dundee Police HQ on November 18 last year.
In May of this year, she was banned for two years after crashing her Land Rover Freelander close to Murthly Primary School at 7.40am on March 12, 2018.
She was also given a Community Payback Order as a“direct alternative” to a jail term.
She was ordered to carry out 200 hours of work within 12 months and will be supervised for a year to give her help and support with her alcohol problem.
Sheriff Gillian Wade refused a prosecution motion to forfeit the £11,000 car she had been driving.
Marsh admitted driving on the B9099 Stanley-Murthly road, near Murthly school, with excess alcohol.
When cautioned and charged, she told officers she suffered from anxiety and depression, adding:“Alcohol makes me feel better.”
