Cortland sheriff: Truxton woman drove drunk with 6-year-old in car

TRUXTON, N.Y. — The Cortland County Sheriff's Office arrested a Truxton woman on Halloween who is accused of driving while intoxicated while a child was in the vehicle.

At around 7:37 p.m. Monday, officers were called to a home on Route 13 in the town of Truxton for an intoxicated driver and a complaint of a possible violation of an order of protection.

While no violation had occurred, officers found that Victoria T. Preston, 38, operated a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a 6-year-old child in the vehicle, the sheriff's office said.

Preston was transported to the Cortland County Public Safety Building for processing and charged with three felony counts of driving while intoxicated with a prior conviction, driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher and driving while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle. She was also charged with a misdemeanor of endangering the welfare of a child.

Preston was arraigned in Homer Town Court and released. She is due back in court next week.
