Manon Coyne, 47, was charged with five counts of felony DWI, one count of aggravated DWI as her Blood Alcohol Content, BAC, was .24, and five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
After just finishing driving her summer school bus route Coyne arrived at a Geneseo home where first responders were working to treat a man with alcohol poisoning when Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies allegedly discovered her to be extremely intoxicated.
According to Coyne’s Defense Council, Sarah Wesley, she is hoping for treatment instead of a state prison sentence.
Wesley requested that Judge Wiggins reconsider the amount of her bail, due to the fact that it will be easier for her to find treatment outside of jail and that she now has additional legal troubles since she was served divorce papers while in prison.
Judge Wiggins kept the bail at the previous set amount of $15,000 cash and $30,000 bond.
Coyne’s next court appearance is set for November 26.
