LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda mother of four admitted Thursday in Niagara County Court that she drove under the influence of alcohol in that city March 2, while all four of her children were in the car.

Michelle A. Lorenc, 46, of Wall Street, pleaded guilty to impaired driving and endangering the welfare of a child, and was scheduled for sentencing Feb. 15 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

The children are now 9, 10, 13 and 16 years old, Lorenc said in court. She was originally charged with felony driving while intoxicated under Leandra’s Law, but the case was pleaded down to a misdemeanor and a traffic infraction.
