Liberty Lynn stands before Judge John Payne with Attorney Chamberland
It's certainly not a good sign when your own defense counselor calls a case "extremely alarming."
But Attorney Chamberland then quickly told Judge Payne that his client heard loud and clear a "wake up call" and she has since "turned her life around."
Liberty Lynn was arrested by Amherst police 5/18/14 for Driving Under the Influence 2nd offense with her 8-year-old son in the vehicle, drug possession, and resisting arrest.
She has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings since that incident almost one year ago, and volunteered to use a "sobrietor" which has verified her abstinence from alcohol.
She now has a part-time job and the Department of Children & Families returned custody of her son.
Judge Payne dismissed three of the four charges and placed her on probation for two years (with drug/alcohol screenings) and imposed fines of $650 for the 2nd offense DUI charge.
