Bethan Jenkins AM reinstated by Plaid Cymru after drink driving conviction
AN Assembly Member who was caught drink driving has been reinstated by her party.
Neath-based Bethan Jenkins was suspended from Plaid Cymru after she was stopped by police in October after officers saw her driving erratically.
At Cardiff Magistrates' Court last month she pleaded guilty and was banned from getting behind the wheel for 20 months.
The court heard that a blood test gave a reading of 194 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80.
