Boardman woman serving sentence for OVI after ATV accident
Boardman woman whose ATV overturned and fell on top of a passenger in August has begun serving a 30-day jail sentence relating to the incident, according to court records.
46-year-old Rachel Peters of Boardman had originally been charged with aggravated vehicular assault, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest after an ATV crash, which left her passenger on the vehicle pinned underneath.
Officers who responded to the scene said Peters attempted to push herself out of the cruiser several times and kicked the cruiser's cage while officers tried to cuff her.
Peters was later charged with an OVI after it was found she was intoxicated during the incident. As part of a deal, Peters pleaded guilty to the OVI and resisting arrest charges in exchange for having the other charges in the case dropped.
Peters was sentenced to 30 days in jail for both offenses, to be served concurrently. She is also sentenced to two concurrent one-year probation sentences, which will end on August 28th, 2024. Her license is also suspended until August 4th, 2024.
Peters was booked into the Mahoning County Jail on September 18th to begin her 30-day sentence.
