Too Drunk - Alaska Mom Lets 7-Year-Old Drive

jail_cell_picWhat happens if you let your seven-year-old drive you home because you’re too wasted? Well worse case scenario, you, your child or an innocent victim loses life or limb. Best case? You get 20 days in jail.

Karen Koch was sentenced – in Fairbanks, Alaska to 20 days in jail, three years of probation and also she must go to six months of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. The mom was arrested after letting her kid drive the car while she was passed out drunk in the passenger seat.  But this was no one time thing, she has already had three drunk driving convictions so instead of adding a fourth incident she had to young son do the driving.

Do you think she got off easy?
