Cheyenne Schroeder-Courtois

— Cheyenne Schroeder-Courtois, 30, was charged with aggravated driving under the influence after a Dec. 2, 2012, wreck.

Schroeder-Courtois was driving east on Northview Street in Boise at a high rate of speed when her car left the road, struck a large landscaping rock, went through the St. Mark's School parking lot and rolled across Cole Road, police said.

Her teenage daughter was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries, including damage to her head and three broken bones. The girl was in a coma for a time and spent nearly two months in the hospital.

Schroeder-Courtois had to be extricated from the car. She was treated and released that same night.

Schroeder-Courtois pleaded guilty to the charge during an appearance before Fourth District Ada County Judge Melissa Moody.

She is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 3. She remains free on bond.
