Amber Robles To Serve 30 To 48 Months For Fourth Felony DUI
A woman convicted of her four count of driving under the influence will spend between 30 to 48 months in prison, Natrona County District Judge Daniel Forgey ruled Monday.
Ambler Robles also will serve 195 days for reckless endangerment, District Attorney Mike Blonigen said after her sentencing.
In June, Robles was arrested after causing several wrecks while driving southbound in the northbound lane, then northbound in the southbound lane of Interstate 25 before crashing near the Bryan Stock Trail exit. The wrecks resulted in four people going to the hospital, according to court records.
Robles, who was 37 at the time of her arrest, had a blood alcohol content of 0.24, or three times the legal limit, according to court documents.
By then, she had two prior DUI convictions, and a third pending DUI in an unrelated case. With three 3 DUI convictions, the fourth in less than 10 years constituted a felony.
In September, Robles pleaded guilty to one felony count of a fourth DUI, and one misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment.
In November, Forgey denied her request to attend the funeral of her grandmother.
Forgey said he was sorry for Robles’ loss and understood those circumstances, but he agreed with Assistant District Attorney Dan Itzen’s objections regarding her history with alcohol and the potential for abuse.
“I understand where she comes from, but we have a duty to keep the community safe,” Forgey said. “I cannot in good conscience modify it at this time.”
