Six year ban for Cumbrian woman almost five times drink-drive limit

A 36-year-old woman has been banned from driving for six years after she was nearly five times the drink-drive limit.

Deborah Rawle, of Low Road Close, Cockermouth, was also given a 16-week jail sentence, suspended for two years, because of the severity of the offence.

Magistrates in west Cumbria told her the alcohol level was “extremely high” and only a custodial sentence could be justified.

Rawle was found to have 161mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – nearly five times the 35mg limit. She had been driving a Hyundai Getz on Low Road on June 19.

She admitted drink-driving and was ordered to have alcohol dependency treatment as part of her two-year supervision order.

Rawle was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £80 victim surcharge.
