Hopefully this will be the wake up call that will result in her turning her life around. Kimberly Micheloni of Douglas County, Colorado, was arrested for a DUI three times within one week.
Micheloni, 40, who works as an office manager for the IRS, was first arrested on May 13, 2014. Not only is she facing DUI charges from this arrest, she will also be facing charges of child abuse because she was driving her 14-year-old daughter. In many states it is a felony to drive drunk with a child in the vehicle and this type of charge can result in a possible mandatory jail sentence.
The next day, May 14, Micheloni was arrested for driving drunk again. Then, on May 20, 2014, Micheloni was arrested for a third time. She was also charged with careless driving and two counts of contempt of court.
Micheloni is currently behind bars on a $225,000 bond. In a jailhouse interview, Micheloni told reporters that she is currently taking prescription medication, which may be the reason for her reckless driving.
“I’m so sorry and if I hurt anyone it was wrong, it was just wrong,” Micheloni told reporters.
In many states a third DUI results in felony charges. In addition to possible jail time, many third time offenders are required to seek treatment, pay expensive fines, and have their driving privileges revoked.
