MIAMI COUNTY — A local woman was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years probation this week for driving while intoxicated with her children in the car.

April D. Lewis, 33, of Piqua, was found guilty of first-degree misdemeanor child endangering and an OVI charge in Miami County Municipal Court. Lewis was originally charged in December after a traffic stop at the intersection of Looney Road and Ash Street in Piqua.

During the traffic stop, the officer noticed that Lewis “had glassy eyes and was very lethargic,” according to court records. Lewis admitted to consuming two alcoholic drinks earlier that night along with medication. Lewis then failed field sobriety tests and a breathalyzer test. There were three children in the vehicle between the ages of 5 and 11 at the time of this incident.

Lewis was also charged with an additional two counts of first-degree misdemeanor child endangering and one count of first-degree misdemeanor theft, which were dismissed.

In addition to jail time and probation, Lewis also received suspended jail time and a fine. She is currently incarcerated at the Miami County Jail.
