North Logan woman pleads guilty to DUI

By Landon Bench

December 4, 2006 | LOGAN -- A 27-year-old North Logan woman pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and driving on a denied license Friday morning in First District Court.

Chantielle Larsen stood before Judge Gordon Low and waived her rights to a preliminary hearing.

Evidence obtained by Officer C. Carter of the Logan City Police Department showed several empty vanilla extract bottles that appeared to have been consumed by Larsen in the car. Larsen's blood alcohol content was 0.2.

According to the prosecution, Larsen caused a five-car crash at the intersection of 400 East and 400 North on Nov. 10, causing only minor injuries to one motorist, 28-year-old Sharon Rowley. Larsen's car ended up on a lawn after hitting a tree.

Larsen has had two prior DUIs -- one in June 2001, and one on Oct. 8, 2002. She has a no-bail status out of Weber County, Judge Low said, and denied bail for Larsen in the First District Court as well.

Prosecutor Chad Hutchings asked that Larson remain incarcerated, which Low granted. Sentencing is scheduled for early January.
