RUSK COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman is found guilty of driving while intoxicated...while her child was in the car!

It took 45 minutes for a jury to convict Letha Iheme. Back in March, Iheme hit another vehicle and then took off. Her five-year-old was with her in the car. When police caught up with her, her blood alcohol level was three times above the legal limit.

Iheme has not been sentenced yet.
