OGDEN — The picture of the wreckage of a life that would lead to nine drunken driving convictions is as bad as you might think.
Chera Baird, 44, was sentenced this week to the Utah State Prison for up to five years on her eighth and ninth DUIs, which she pleaded guilty to in April.
Two days after arrest for DUI number eight in Ogden, her last DUI came Nov. 18, also in Ogden. In that instance, her blood-alcohol content was measured at .223, according to charging documents, nearly three times the .08 legal limit for driving. She also drove away from the scene of a minor traffic accident she caused before police caught up with her.
