HILLSBORO, Ore.- On January 29th, 2020, Anna Louise Foster-Wylie pleaded guilty to felony driving under the influence of intoxicants and was sentenced to 30 months in prison by Judge Eric Butterfield. Deputy District Attorney Bryce Bissinger prosecuted the case against Ms. Foster-Wylie. This is the defendant’s ninth conviction for driving under the influence.

On September 19, 2019, the defendant was spotted by a concerned citizen along East Main Street near Southeast 3rd Avenue in Hillsboro, Oregon. The citizen called police to report the defendant was sitting in her car as it idled. The caller told police the defendant was yelling and slurring her words.

Officer Marco Ramirez of the Hillsboro Police Department responded to the scene. Officer Ramirez found the defendant in her car with the engine running. The officer noted the defendant presented multiple signs of intoxication including slurred speech, a lack of focus, incoherent statements and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. She refused field sobriety tests and was taken to an area hospital when she became combative.

Officer Ramirez obtained a warrant to test the defendant’s blood. Those results later showed a blood alcohol content of 0.217 in blood samples taken three hours after she was first arrested.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of Officer Ramirez and Hillsboro Police in protecting public safety by responding to the scene quickly before the defendant could endanger others. This office also salutes the concerned citizen for calling police to make the initial report.

Judge Butterfield also ordered Ms. Foster-Wylie to undergo three years of post-prison supervision upon her release. She will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving her sentence.
