Carnlough motorist was more than four times drink drive limit

A WOMAN with a Carnlough address was more than four times the drink drive limit.

Sonya McGuckan (47), of High Street, had an alcohol in breath reading of 149 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit is 35.

The offence happened at Carnlough Road, Broughshane, on August 29 this year.

She has also admitted taking a Seat Leon without authority; absence of insurance and and a driving licence offence.

Defence solicitor Kevin MacAllister accepted it was a "very high reading".

The court heard the defendant had previous relevant convictions.

She was given an interim driving ban and the case at Ballymena Magistrates Court was adjourned to November 4 for a pre-sentence report.
