Mom Who Crashed With Kids Gets Probation

Court ActionHASTINGS (AP) — A Rochester woman accused of driving drunk when she crashed with her five children in the car won’t have to serve jail time.

But 31-year-old Kyra Lindsey faces a nearly yearlong sentence if she doesn’t follow rules outlined at her sentencing Wednesday in Dakota County.

Lindsey pleaded guilty in November to criminal vehicular operation and child endangerment, both gross misdemeanors. She was charged after she crashed on Highway 52 near Hampton on Feb. 28, 2011. Her children — ages 3 months to 9 years — were not seriously hurt.

The judge gave Lindsey credit for five days she spent in custody. She also was ordered to serve a year of probation, use no alcohol or drugs, and spend 15 days on electronic home monitoring.
