Repeat Offender Indicted For Child Endangerment After DUI Arrest

Comments (0)

A mother from Chesterfield county whose record shows many prior convictions has been indicted by a Chesterfield Circuit Court grand jury on charges of felony child-endangerment and driving under the influence.

The indictment against 25-year-old Daphne N. Holt was returned on Jan. 20. The DUI charge is her third since December 2003.

Authorities say that Holt was stopped by a police officer at around 9:30 p.m. on October 10, 2007 at Hull Street and Winterpock roads after witnessing her driving erratically. She was charged with felony DUI after failing a sobriety test.

Holt’s 9-month-old son was sitting unbuckled in his child-car seat. Police say the seat had not been secured to the seat of her car. The officer also discovered that Holt was driving on a suspended license from her last DUI conviction two years ago.

Holt has prior convictions for speeding, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, failure to follow court instructions, and contempt of court. In February 2004 she was convicted for her first DUI and was fined $250 and sentenced to six months in jail. That entire sentence was suspended. In December 2006, she was convicted of DUI for the second time and fined $500 and sentenced to six months in jail with five months and 10 days suspended.
