That's a class b misdemeanor. She is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Hernandez will make her initial appearance May 28th. She and her husband Juan Ruiz offered emotional testimony to lawmakers this session as tougher DUI laws were debated. A drunk driver killed Juan and Sandy's two boys near Lake Metigoshe in July of 2012.
