A young woman will pay the price for driving while intoxicated.

Harley Jay Auger, 23, was fined $1,000, plus a fine victim surcharge of $300, after pleading guilty to driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 80 mg when she appeared in High Prairie provincial court.

She recorded breath samples of 160 mg after she was stopped by High Prairie RCMP on March 30, Crown prosecutor Petter Hurich said.

Police also found a bottle of Vodka in the vehicle after she was stopped.

The accused continues to progress on the road to sobriety.

“She is working to turn her life around in a treatment program,” says Cheryl Kachuk, criminal court worker for Native Counselling Services of Alberta.

Auger was also suspended from driving for one year.

Few were sentenced during a light docket.
