Time for some jail

The Herald reports:

Killer driver Rouxle Le Roux will appear in court next month for allegedly breaching the conditions of her home detention.
The 19-year-old admitted a charge of dangerous driving causing the death of 15-year-old Nathan Kraatskow in May last year.
Le Roux had been drinking wine and smoking cannabis before she got behind the wheel of a Mercedes and hit and killed Nathan at the Oteha Valley Rd offramp in Albany.
Nathan was cycling home when he was killed.

In December Le Roux was sentenced to 11 months’ home detention.
She was also ordered to complete 250 hours of community work and was disqualified from driving for two-and-a-half years.
A condition of her home detention was that Le Roux must answer the door and present herself to authorities at any given time.
On February 20 it is alleged she failed to respond to two visits where probation officers knocked repeatedly on the door of her home.

She was incredibly lucky to get away with home detention. It appears she sees this as voluntary and has been going out with friends, rather than staying in home detention.
