Lawton,Okla_A Lawton woman convicted of drinking and driving with her two young children in the car will serve two years in prison. Prosecutors say Akeiya Haynes wrecked her car on Northwest Baltimore last April.
When police got there, Haynes was noticeably intoxicated and admitted she'd been drinking. Court records show her blood alcohol level was four times the legal limit at the time of the crash. She pleaded guilty to several charges Monday including child endangerment by driving under the influence and reckless driving.
The judge gave Haynes a 2 year suspended sentenced. She will have to wear a scram anklet during that time so officials can make sure she's not drinking.
To resuscitate their push, Republicans would need to change opposing senators' minds, which they've tried unsuccessfully to do for months.
Oklahoma lawmakers will gather back at the capitol today for day two of a special legislative session to address the multi-million dollar budget shortfall. It was called in response to the State Supreme court's decision to overturn the $1.50 cigarette "fee." The fee was ruled unconstitutional -- but Republican leaders say they plan to bring it back to pass it as a tax.
