A positive blood sample led Marley J. Steinke, 32, to plead guilty in Estevan Provincial Court on Monday to a .08 charge.
On July 28, 2018, east of Lampman police responded to a black two-door sportscar on the side of the road, with Marley in it. She told emergency medical personnel she had consumed one beer.
She did not provide a breath sample, but at the hospital, a blood sample was taken and sent to an Edmonton lab. It resulted in a blood alcohol content reading of .195, more than double the legal limit of .08.
This was her second conviction for impaired driving.
She was sentenced to 34 days incarceration, with one day served, and the remainder to be spent at the impaired driver treatment centre at Prince Albert, commencing on Sept. 13. Since she doesn’t start the treatment for a month, she was put on probation for 30 days up until then. Steinke was given a 12-month driving prohibition. She also has to pay a $100 surcharge.
