ROCHESTER, Minn. – The woman arrested twice in two months for drunk driving is sentenced a second time.
49-year-old Laura Jean Jackson of Rochester was arrested October 28 for driving while intoxicated with a child in her car. She was arrested again on November 8 after the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says she drove off the road, hit a tree, and got stuck in a yard in the 500 block of Byron Avenue North in Byron. Jackson reportedly tested with a blood alcohol content of .17 percent in the second incident.
Jackson pleaded guilty to DUI for the October incident and her license was revoked. She has now pleaded guilty to gross misdemeanor DWI for the November crash and was sentenced Wednesday to 10 days in jail, two years of supervised probation, 90 hours of community work service, and a $900 fine.
