A mother is now asking parents not to hire Phoenix nanny Nancy Kline, according to KPHO News. The nanny allegedly drove drunk going 65 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone while a two-year-old and eight-year-old child were in the car. While on the job, the nanny reportedly struck another vehicle and fled the scene.
Phoenix police officers say that they found a water bottle full of vodka in Nancy Kline's vehicle along with the two children that were not wearing seat belts. A breath test later revealed that the nanny had a blood-alcohol level of .201 at the time of her arrest on September 6, which is nearly three times the Arizona legal limit.
It looks like Nancy Kline will need a Phoenix DUI attorney if she wants to avoid serious criminal charges. The woman has been charged with three felony counts of aggravated and extreme DUI. However, Nancy Ann Kline pleaded not guilty to the DUI charges last week. She is next scheduled to appear in court in December for the trial.
A DUI is typically a misdemeanor charge in the state of Arizona. However, FindLaw states that a person can be charged with a felony DUI if the incident results with an injury or if there are children under the age of 15 in the car at the time of driving under the influence. A third DUI offense is also treated as a felony in the state of Arizona. More information about DUI laws in the state can be found through our Related Resources pages.
