Worse still, the 25-year-old legal eagle was caught within 1000 meters of a school which mean the misdemeanors she could have faced have been upgraded to a felony.
At the time alaw enforcement source: "She wasn't very well hidden and when we found out who she was and what she does there were a few raised eyebrows in the locker room."
But the tragic two-month-old Brandy Ardon didn't die from burning but smoke inhalation, meaning her last moments on earth were spent in pure agony.
The girl suffered from a terminal, genetic disorder - Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome - and had recently been released from hospice care when she died when mother Suceli killed her.
She told cops that she panicked after she thought she gave her baby an accidental, fatal overdose of morphine, a drug she gave the infant to manage her pain.
Little Laniece Pena's skull was crushed by the horrified driver, who didn't see the girl as she ran out of her yard, which contained a broken gate, a can of lighter fluid and a paddling pool with five inches of water in it, unsupervised.
She was struck by a van which takes children with disabilities to a local hospital, outside her apartment block.
Prosecuting lawyers had made legal history by admitting a smell taken from her car into evidence which as we reported here Dr Arpad Vass, a researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory described as "shocking and definitely that of human remains.
Along with Anthony's mother Cindy and father George also agreed that her car had the stench of death in it.
But in testimony yesterday, entomologist Dr. Timothy Huntington poo pooed the idea, claiming the smell was nothing more than garbage.
The troublesome 20-year-old who has no formal flight training, pilfered at least five planes and dozens of car and boats as he evaded capture for a string of burglaries over the last two or three years.
He is suspected to have committed at least 80 break-ins on cottages and houses in Vancouver WA area, often without wearing any shoes.
But each time authorities got near he'd steal a boat or a plane to escape, even though he had no formal flight training and is believed to have taught himself from manuals.
Eventually, he flew a light plane from his home in Vancouver Island to the Caribbean, landing in the Bahamas, where a $10,000 FBI reward and a huge law enforcement team caught up with him.
