Steffi Brasington, a former Clare County Probate Court juvenile registrar placed on administrative leave in March, was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail, 12 months probation and court fees.

Brasington pled guilty the last week of April to fleeing and eluding officers and to driving while intoxicated during the March 12 incident.

Brasington, 55, was arrested by Clare County deputies after she led officers on a high speed chase while intoxicated.

According to the March release from the Clare County Sheriff’s Department, deputies attempted the stop after seeing a silver SUV driving north on Old State Avenue in Surrey Township just after midnight. When Brasington, the driver, failed to stop, she continued speeding erratically north on Old State and then turned onto eastbound U.S. 10 for about two miles before stopping.

Roadside testing determined she was too intoxicated to be operating a vehicle. She was arrested and arraigned March 29 on the charges of fleeing and eluding (4th degree) and the misdemeanor charge of operating while intoxicated (second offense).
