Our thanks to Ken for this. The start of the piece:
An accountant who crashed her car while over the limit on the day she was due to appear in court over another drink drive charge has avoided a jail sentence.
Paulina Gancarz was found slumped at the wheel of her Mini Cooper in a layby last month and breath tests showed she was five times the legal alcohol limit.
But the day she was due to appear in court, she crashed her car [J4MB: Fortunately, she didn’t kill anyone.] outside a Marks and Spencer store near her £300,000 apartment in Wilmslow, Cheshire. This time she was found to be three times the limit.
The 34-year-old has now admitted drink driving and failing to provide a specimen of breath but avoided a jail term after telling magistrates of her troubled home life. [J4MB emphasis. We’ve never heard of men avoiding jail terms on account of “troubled home lives”.]
