A woman who drove drunk with her infant daughter in the car narrowly escaped jail when she appeared in the Queenstown District Court yesterday.

Julie Heidi Schoenwald, 40, manager, was fined $1200 and disqualified from driving for nine months for driving with a breath alcohol level of 701mcg on August 24.

Schoenwald was driving with her infant daughter in the car about noon when two members of the public called police after seeing her driving erratically.

Schoenwald admitted drinking until late the night before and driving without having breakfast.

Schoenwald was warned she could go to jail if she appeared in court again on a drink-driving charge, because it was her second conviction.
