Accused Of DWI With A 5 Year Old In Car

TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. - 42 year old Tammie Renner is facing a number of charges after being arrested under Leandra's Law Tuesday at her Tonawanda home.

Leandra's Law is named after Leandra Rosado, an 11 year old killed last October. She was in an SUV driven by a friend's mother, the mother was under the influence when she crashed on the Henry Hudson Parkway in Manhattan. The law took effect in December and makes it a felony in New York to be DWI with a child under 16 in the vehicle.

Tonawanda Police say that Renner would have faced felony charges even without Leandra's Law. Renner had two DWI-related convictions in the past four years and was driving with a revoked license.
