Drunk Jefferson Woman Had 3 Kids in Car, Cops Say
47-year-old resident charged with DWI and endangering the welfare of a child.
A Jefferson woman was arrested last Saturday after she allegedly drove drunk with her three children in the car, police said.
Constance Richards, 47, was charged on Dec. 8 with DWI, endangering the welfare of a child, refusal to submit to a breath test, reckless driving, failure to remain in lane of travel and expired driver's license, Capt. Eric Wilsusen said.
Police conducted a motor vehicle stop of Richards over on Cozy Lake Road after her vehicle swerved in between lanes on Berkshire Valley Road and Cozy Lake Road, Wilsusen said.
Wilsusen said Richards failed to cooperate with the Breathalyzer test.
It was determined Richards was driving under the influence while her children were in the car, Wilsusen said.
