A judge says an Ohio woman with a history of impaired driving charges "slipped through the cracks" before driving drunk last summer and killing another motorist.
A security video from a local bar showed Seymour so drunk that she was falling from her bar stool. Prosecutors said she then got in her car and slammed into a Lincoln Navigator driven by local attorney Annie Rooney, who was killed.
The 36-year-old Seymour has 24 misdemeanor charges dating to 1997. She had been charged with drunken driving four times, but they were reduced. She has had her license suspended three times.
