A woman arrested for allegedly driving drunk with two children in her vehicle has pleaded guilty.

Court records show Jamyria Leon Olson, 23, enter the plea Friday to charges of DWI - operating a motor vehicle with an alcohol concentration of .08 within 2 hours and to endangering a child. Both are gross misdemeanors.


A criminal complaint says a Hopkins police officer saw a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road just after midnight on May 1. As the officer caught up to the vehicle, it ran a red light and sped away, continuing to swerve between the lanes, according to police.

When it finally pulled over, the driver, Olson, was visibly impaired and was arrested for DWI. Police also said her children, ages 1 and 10, were in the vehicle and the one-year-old's child seat was loose.

The criminal complaint states Olson was also convicted of DWI in October 2018.

Her sentencing is set for July 24.
