Woman sentenced for drunken chase with babies in vehicle
LAKE ANDES, S.D. (AP) — A Ravinia woman has been sentenced to a month in jail for leading police on a drunken chase with three babies in her vehicle.
Authorities say 29-year-old Kateri Archambeau was legally drunk when she led Yankton Sioux and Charles Mix County officers on a chase in June. Officers found three infants inside her van, not properly secured in car seats.
The Daily Republic reports that Archambeau pleaded guilty to drunken driving and prosecutors dropped other charges including child abuse.
She’ll have her driver’s license revoked for one month and will serve three years of probation. She also must pay $203 in fines and fees.
