PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine mother busted for driving 124 mph with her two children in the car in April has been sentenced to six months in jail, and police say she’s now facing a driving under the influence charge.

Twenty-six-year-old Cheryl Gilson of Cornish was sentenced Monday in Portland District Court. She pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and other charges.

A state trooper stopped Gilson in Portland in April after clocking her driving 124 mph on the Maine Turnpike in Saco. Authorities say her children, ages 3 and 5, were in the car, along with three young men.

Scarborough police charged Gilson with operating under the influence with a 6-year-old girl in her car three weeks ago. It’s not clear if the child is related to Gilson.
