Two Auburn women with a history of impaired driving convictions, are facing felony charges after driving drunk this past weekend, according to the Auburn Police Department.
Jessica D. L. Hale, 27, of 47 N. Fulton St., was arrested on Dec. 29 with a blood alcohol content of 0.14. Hale has previously been convicted for driving while intoxicated in April, and police said her license had been revoked.
Hale was charged with DWI with a previous conviction and driving with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit, both class E felonies. She was also charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a class F felony, and two driving infractions.
Hale was arraigned Tuesday in Auburn City Court and released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear for a pretrial conference at 9:15 a.m. on Feb. 28.
The following day on Dec. 30, police conducted a traffic stop and arrested Susan M. Homick. Police said the 44-year-old, of 228 N. Seward Ave, had made multiple moving violations while driving. They found her blood alcohol content to be 0.17. Police added that Homick had been convicted in the last 18 months of driving while ability impaired, and had been driving with a suspended license.
Homick was charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a class E felony. She was also charged with two class U misdemeanors — DWI first offense, and driving with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit. Police also charged the Auburn woman with multiple traffic infractions.
Homick was released on an appearance ticket. She is scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 5 in Auburn City Court.
