A WOMAN has been granted bail and banned from drinking, while she is awaiting sentence for driving while seven times the legal limit.
Janette Fay Livermore has already admitted to high-range drink driving but has been bailed to live in Tamworth and get rehabilitation.
The 47-year-old has been held in a women's prison since June after she caught the eye of police when she crashed her car while she was drunk. She has never held a driver's licence, the court has heard.
Livermore, 47, lodged a bid for release in Tamworth Local Court which was granted by magistrate Julie Soars.
She was granted conditional release under Section 11 of the Crimes Sentencing Procedure Act meaning she's on remand for sentencing for rehabilitation.
As part of the remand warrant, she's been ordered to live in South Tamworth and complete the intensive diversionary program for alcohol issues, and attend all appointments.
Ms Soars made an order that Livermore not get behind the wheel of any vehicle, and must not drink alcohol or take any drugs.
Livermore has been ordered to reappear in court again later this month.
Livermore admitted to drink driving and never holding a licence when she first fronted a magistrate in Tamworth, following her arrest on the night of June 26.
She was arrested in Anthony Road in Tamworth.
Police were called to the Anthony Road home shortly after 4.30pm after reports a car had hit a house.
Witnesses called Triple Zero after Livermore got behind the wheel of the Ford Falcon and lost control.
Police claimed Livermore reversed harshly out of the driveway across Anthony Road before mounting the gutter and crashing into the house.
At the time of her arrest, police said it was miraculous that no one was injured with several children in the street who were playing on the roadway at the time.
Ambulance paramedics were called to assess Livermore as a precaution, but she was not injured.
She failed a roadside breath test and was arrested and taken to Tamworth police station. It was there that Livermore recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.369 - more than seven times the legal blood alcohol limit.
The high reading astounded senior police at the time, with the level believed to be one of the biggest the city has recorded.
Livermore was charged with driving with a high-range PCA and driver never licensed, and refused bail by police, and subsequently by the court.
In unrelated charges, Livermore has also pleaded guilty to charges of domestic violence-related assault, behaving in an offensive manner, and two counts of contravening an AVO.
