Perris woman gets probation for DUI crash
RIVERSIDE — A 22-year-old woman who crashed her car into a utility pole in Perris while intoxicated pleaded guilty Friday to driving under the influence and was immediately sentenced to three years probation.
Taylor Dawn Dreese of Perris was arrested in October for the crash in the 2400 block of Murrieta Road, near Orange Avenue.
During her arraignment at the Riverside Hall of Justice, Dreese admitted the misdemeanor charge, as well as a sentence-enhancing allegation of refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test, under a plea agreement with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
A Superior Court judge certified the terms of the plea deal and imposed the sentence stipulated by the prosecution and defense. In addition to probation, Nagby ordered that Dreese serve 30 days in a sheriff’s work release program and pay a $1,700 fine.
According to sheriff’s officials, the crash occurred about 6 a.m. Oct. 18.
Dreese was at the wheel of a sedan that skidded off the roadway and slammed into an electrical transmission pole after she failed to negotiate a curve, officials said.
Dreese suffered a non-life-threatening injury for which she was treated before being taken to jail, according to the sheriff’s department.
No other vehicles were involved.
Dreese had no prior misdemeanor or felony convictions in Riverside County.
