A Warren woman has been arrested for driving while intoxicated with a child under 15 years of age, earlier this month.
Michelle Hanley, age 33 of Warren, was pulled over by officers and was discovered to be over the legal limit of alcohol consumption. She had a minor in her vehicle that was under the age of 15.
Drunk driving alone on the first offense is punishable by 3 to 180 days in a county jail or a fine of up to $2,000. Drunk Driving with a minor is a more serious charge and is a state jail felony, punishable by 180 days to 2 years in a state jail or a fine up to $10,000. The charges increase after repeat offenses.
Consequences following the charge could also lead to suspended license.
Hanley was arrested and is now being held at the Tyler County Jail with a $2,500 bond.
