According to an April 15th article in The Journal Times, a high school theater director in Racine was recently sentenced to six months in jail after a court concluded that her intoxication caused injuries to a motorist in Caledonia last May.
Reports state that 31-year-old Marie Maynard had a blood alcohol content of 0.15 percent on May 18, 2015 when she caused a head-on collision with another motorist who was under the influence of marijuana at the time. The collision took place because Maynard was driving the wrong way down a street.
The victim, whose name was not released, sustained several bodily injuries after he was trapped inside his vehicle. Witnesses recounted seeing Maynard driving erratically moments before the accident happened. Aside from jail time, Maynard was also sentenced to four years probation and she was ordered to pay a fine in the amount of $500.
