A repeat high-range drink-driver with a history of getting behind the wheel while disqualified has been warned she is in danger of full-time jail.
Lavington woman Veronica Evelyn Joyce Hunter was handed a 12-month term in Albury Local Court this week.
But she was granted a reprieve after magistrate Rodney Brender ordered that the sentence be served by way of home detention.

The 12-month intensive corrections order came after Hunter, 29, of Cheyenne Drive, pleaded guilty to second offence charges of driving with a high-range prescribed concentration of alcohol and drive while disqualified.
"If you breach it there will be a 12-month jail term required to be served without parole," Mr Brender said.
She must also do 90 hours of unpaid work.
The court was told that police went to a house in Neptune Drive, Lavington, on June 30 just before 5am.
As they parked in front of the house, they saw a car slowly reversing out of the driveway.
"A number of people approached the Holden Barina and were seen to be hitting the passenger side of the vehicle."
The car then moved forward and the lights were switched off.
The smell of intoxicating liquor wafted out of the car and Hunter repeatedly refused to produce a driver's licence.
"A number of other people from (the house) became very vocal towards police and what they were doing."
Hunter provided a blood alcohol reading of 0.187.
Police checks revealed she was disqualified from driving until February 17, 2021.
