A Bomaderry woman convicted of mid-range drink driving and driving while disqualified has been sentenced in her absence.
Carrina Jannette Casey, 40, was three times the limit and disqualified from driving until 2024 when stopped by police on Penrose Drive, Bomaderry on April 23 this year.
Police said the vehicle was swerving over the road and when stopped Casey was visibly affected by alcohol.
She produced a positive breath reading and was almost three times the limit, 0.142.
Technically, being a P-plate driver, she should have had a zero alcohol level.
The court heard she had previously been charged with high range drink driving, which led to her disqualification, with four years still to serve.
Casey was convicted in her absence by Magistrate Gabriel Fleming in Nowra Local Court on Tuesday, June 23.
She was placed on an 11-month intensive corrections order, meaning she can serve her sentence in the community rather than in jail, must perform 80 hours community service, has been disqualified from driving for eight months and have an interlock device fitted to her vehicle for two years.
