Teen ordered to serve probation

November 23, 2006|by PEPPER BALLARD

A 17-year-old girl admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court to driving under the influence in August.

Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, ordered the girl to serve the juvenile equivalent of probation before judgment.

Probation before judgment is the conditional avoidance of imposition of a sentence or, in a juvenile case, a disposition. If certain conditions, which in this case included community service, are not satisfied, the girl could be sent back to court for violating probation.

The girl was stopped driving a vehicle north on Md. 66, north of Republican Avenue, at about 3 a.m. Aug. 2 after she failed to stop at a traffic signal, Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

Her blood alcohol content was measured at .13, Flores said.

The girl's mother told Beachley that she tried to enroll her daughter in drug and alcohol classes at the girl's college, but a counselor there said the girl didn't need it.
