Mom Uses 10-Year-Old As Designated Driver

KHQ.COM - A South Florida mom had the general idea when she decided her boyfriend was a little too tipsy to drive, but her choice for a designated driver will likely land her in jail.

Audrey Willoughby, 33, pleaded no contest Monday to child abuse charges after she allegedly let her 10-year-old daughter drive mommy home after a few too many beers, TCPalm.com reported.

The little girl rammed three vehicles and a house during the May crash course in designated driving.

Willoughby won't get more than 18 months in prison under the plea agreement.

According to police, Willoughby and a friend, Michael Ray Green, were giving the little girl driving lessons in Fort Pierce.

Green had a couple of beers and decided it might be best if the little girl drove the group home. Willoughby approved of the not-so-well-thought-out idea, handed her daughter the keys and jumped in the back seat with the girl's 8-year-old brother.

No sooner than the 10-year old pulled out into traffic did she start crashing into cars. In a panic, the preteen hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and drove the Toyota Corolla into a house.

No one was injured in the crash.
