A mum-of-three who was caught driving three times over the drink drive limit had her disabled child in the car, a court heard.
Kimberley Smith, 26, of Quarmby Road, Quarmby, had 120mg of alcohol in her breath when she was stopped on Longwood Gate. The legal limit is 35mg.
Kirklees Magistrates Court heard how the single mother had been enjoying Christmas drinks with her partner the night before the incident on December 22.
Smith had then proceeded to drive the next morning to give her sister a lift with her three children, the court heard.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said Smith had drunk a “cocktail” of different drinks the night before, and was still unfit to drive the following morning.
He said: “She had not eaten during the day.
“The children returned to her and the following morning she put the children in the car to pick her sister up.”
Mr Bozman explained one of Miss Smith’s children, a five-year-old boy, has cerebral palsy.
Police had pulled Miss Smith after she pulled too quickly out of a junction.
Smith was given a 12-month community order of 200 hours unpaid work and a £265 fine.
She was also disqualified from driving for 30 months.
