Intoxicated Daycare Director Had Children In Her Car

Posted on May 15, 2014

Many working families rely on day care centers. They are meant to be trustworthy places where your children will be well taken care of and nurtured while you work to provide for them. Often, parents have no choice but to put their faith in these caretakers, so when that sacred trust is violated, it’s all the more disconcerting.

A 29-year-old daycare director in Durant, Oklahoma was one of those caretakers in whom parents placed their utmost trust with their most prized loved ones, and the violation she committed is almost unthinkable. She drove intoxicated with children in her car.

When officers arrived at the scene, the woman was sitting in her car with four children in the vehicle. When questioned, she appeared to be confused and officers noticed that her eyes were red and watery and that she was slurring her speech. They determined that she was under the influence of drugs.

The woman admitted that she had taken Hydrocodine, Xanax and Soma. She was arrested on the spot and has been charged with driving under the influence.

Why she decided to drive with children in her car while intoxicated is unclear. Luckily, no one was injured or killed, but the situation could have quickly turned disastrous had the woman not been discovered. If not that day, then another.

Stories like these make it imperative to know your rights when someone else’s negligence has caused you harm. An Oklahoma attorney with experience fighting for the victims of drunk driving accidents may be able to get you compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
