DUII conviction triggers house arrest
Misty Hackworth, 37, was also sentenced to 30 months probation, fined $2,000 and ordered to pay restitution in an amount to be determined. Her license was suspended until Jan. 18, 2021.
One count each of second-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving were dismissed as part of a plea agreement between her privately retained attorney, Kevin Davenport of Portland, and the the Yamhill County District Attorney’s Office. Sentence was pronounced by Circuit Judge Cal Tichenor.
The house arrest option was offered in lieu of a 45-day jail term. She will be required to wear an monitoring bracelet.
Neither Hackworth nor the child were injured. However, the child was transported by McMinnville Fire Department ambulance to the Willamette Valley Medical Center for evaluation.
Trooper Creed Cummings of the Oregon State Police gave this account:
Hackworth was southbound on Highway 99W about 11 p.m. when she crashed her 2005 Chevrolet into a row of bright yellow barriers near the St. Joseph overpass. She ended up blocking one of the southbound lanes.
Her blood alcohol content measured .18, more than double the .08 marking the presumptive level of intoxication in Oregon.
