Judge denies former state rep’s travel request


A former state representative convicted of DWI will now to have to reschedule her honeymoon. Monica Youngblood was sentenced to one day in jail and a year of probation after being found guilty of misdemeanor DWI. 

As part of her probation, Youngblood must check in with the court before traveling.

Most recently she requested to travel to Cabo San Lucas next month for her honeymoon, even saying she’s already paid for the trip. Judge Kevin Fitzwater denied the request. 

Earlier this month, the judge ordered Youngblood to take at least one alcohol test a week for the next 45 days after two prior tests appeared to be diluted. 

In a statement, Judge Fitzwater told KRQE News 13, “The increased level of supervision on which Ms. Youngblood has been placed cannot be implemented if she travels out of the state.”
