Holmes Beach woman sentenced for DUI

A woman pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 12 months probation in connection with a night in Holmes Beach when she was found slumped over the wheel of a Jaguar.

Eileen Riley, 57, of Holmes Beach, was charged with driving under the influence and refusing to undergo a urine test in November 2017.

A gas station operator reported she’d possibly overdosed in her car while parked at the station, 3015 Gulf Drive, according to a Holmes Beach police report.

Prescription drugs commonly used for opioid dependence and nerve pain were found in Riley’s possession, according to the HBPD report.

Twelfth Circuit Judge Renee Inman adjudged her guilty Nov. 13 and sentenced her to probation, including a DUI program, victim-impact panel and a one-year driver’s license suspension.

The sentence also included 200 hours of public service, random urinalysis and an order that an ignition device be installed in her vehicle for a year.

Court records show Riley was assessed more than $3,500 in fines and court costs.
