An Auburn woman will spend time in Cayuga County Jail for her fourth drunk driving conviction in 25 years.
Maryellen Williams, of 201 Janet St., was arrested March 18 after leading police on a chase through downtown Auburn. The 43-year-old was eventually pulled over on State Street where she registered a blood alcohol content of .21 percent, nearly three times the legal limit.
In July, Williams pleaded guilty to three felonies: aggravated driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. She also admitted failing to obey police, a traffic infraction.
According to Cayuga County Assistant District Attorney Diane Adsit, this was Williams’ fourth DWI conviction. She was previously convicted of DWI in 2015, 2001 and 1999.
