A BARMAID who left a schoolboy scarred for life after she drunkenly crashed her BMW has been spared jail.
Terri Parker, 31, ploughed her 320D SE into a stationary vehicle and then a fence while speeding around a bend.

He now has a “significant scar” to the side of his face and walks with a limp, a court heard.
The other passenger, a six-month-old, escaped unhurt.
Parker, from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, who had been looking after the children, later claimed she had been binge drinking after the death of her newborn daughter.

Tests showed she had 238 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood in her system – almost three times the legal limit of 80mg.
At Warrington Magistrates’ Court, Parker pleaded guilty to drink driving and two charges of being drunk in charge of the children – both of whom cannot be identified for legal reasons.
She was sentenced to eight weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.
Prosecutor Emily Comer said police were called by ambulance services after a traffic collision on Thornton Road at around 9pm on April 10.

“The vehicle had been seen speeding around a corner,” she said.
“Police vehicles attended the scene. A white BMW had crashed into a parked vehicle causing substantial damage.
“She was clearly intoxicated.”
The prosecutor told the court that Parker had no previous convictions and the drink driving offence was aggravated by a child being injured.
Solicitor Peter Barnett, representing Parker, said she had been binge drinking due to the trauma of losing her newborn daughter six months previously.
”Prior to the birth she was a social drinker and did not drink to excess,” he said.
“However, when the girl died she was left suffering from anxiety and depression.
“She accepts that she was binge drinking at the time and clearly this was an example of binge drinking.
“She did not think through the consequences of what she was doing. It was poor decision making.”
Mr Barnett said Parker had decided to drive the two or three streets home as she didn’t have a coat for the boy and the pushchair was in the boot of the car.
“Nobody could be more remorseful than her and she has accepted that she has caused the scar,” he added.
“She was suffering anxiety and trauma resulting from a significant incident in her life.”
Chair of the bench Elizabeth Jeddes said the offences crossed the custody threshold but suspended the sentence as “there is a realistic prospect of rehabilitation”.

Parker will have to undertake 20 days of rehabilitative activity and complete a 90-day alcohol abstinence monitoring program.
She was banned from driving for two years and ordered to pay £274 in costs.
