Evans woman again charged with DUI

A 22-year-old Evans woman injured in a violent, alcohol-related crash in February has again been charged with driving under the influence.


Jenna Victoria Sevigny was arrested last week and charged with DUI and failing to dim her headlights, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report.

Just before 4 a.m. Oct. 3, Deputy J.A. Brogdanow pulled Sevigny over on Evans to Locks Road near Blue Ridge Drive when she did not dim her headlights, Capt. Steve Morris said.

Brogdanow suspected Sevigny had been drinking, but she refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test, Morris said. She was charged with DUI-less safe and booked into the Columbia County Detention Center, where she was released the next day after posting $2,200 bond.

Charges, including DUI, related to the single-vehicle crash in February are still pending against Sevigny in Columbia County Probate Court. She was sent to the hospital with injuries from that accident, which occurred about 3 a.m. Feb. 20. Sevigny’s vehicle ran off North Belair Road near Furys Ferry Road and slammed into a pine tree, splitting the car in two.

Sevigny, who was partially ejected from the vehicle, was treated at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital and charged after her release with DUI, failing to wear a seat belt, driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane and speeding.

She was released from jail on those charges after posting $4,400 bond.
