Tamara Bradford Pleads Guilty

February 11, 2008, 6:00 PM by Matthew Holsen

The Rapid City woman accused of hitting four young boys while driving drunk last September pleaded guilty today to two counts of vehicular battery.

She caused cuts, bruises and broken bones when she drove into a group of boys on their bicycles. Today the family of those victims were relieved when she walked into the Pennington county courthouse and pleaded guilty. 

"We're kind of excited because now we don't have to go to a jury trial," says Keri Ihle, mother of one of the victims.

The plea is part of an agreement. The victim's families were willing to drop two charges of vehicular battery, one for driving with a revoked license and a D-U-I third charge. Police say she had a blood alcohol limit of .27 the day of the accident... three times the legal limit. 

"I still can't believe it happened and that she got this far into the system before something was done," says Ihle.

But Bradford will meet these families in court yet again. She's scheduled to be sentenced in mid-march and her victim's plan to make statements.

"I just want her to know how we feel about how lucky she is that our kids are still alive and that she needs to suffer the consequences of what she did to herself," adds Ihle.

Bradford now faces up to 20 years in prison. The young boys and their family members are also looking to confront Bradford in a meeting where they can talk about the accident.
