93-year-old ND driver asks for jury trial

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — A 93-year-old Oberon woman in trouble for alleged driving offenses is set for a jury trial Oct. 6.

Faith Mitzel could face two months in jail and $2,000 in fines if convicted.

Mitzel's driver's license was suspended following a May crash in which authorities say she hit two motorcycles, killing a woman. She was fined $20.

Mitzel was then stopped in early August on a traffic violation and subsequently arrested for driving with a suspended license and not having insurance. Both are misdemeanors.
