A young mother was caught with methamphetamine in her system while driving with an eight-year-old.
Monique Jane Mitchell, 26, was arrested by police when she drove off with the teen in Mount Gambier in South Australia in November.
Singer P faced a similar drug driving charge in 2019 and lost her license for six months.

Mitchell has now been slapped with a more stringent 12-month license suspension and $1,100 fine for the violation, Adelaide now mentioned.
The Mount Gambier woman admitted to officers that she took MDMA pills this weekend, the police prosecutor told the court.
She pleaded guilty to driving under the influence with a child under the age of 16 and violating a provision of her temporary licence.
Judge Kola Kociaphilos suggested that Mitchell, who lost her farm job after the accident, begin counseling to manage her drug problems.

The South Australian government recently upped the ante giving police more powers to take away the license of anyone who tests positive for drugs while driving.
Drivers caught under the influence were subject to a fine or court summons, which could result in loss of licence.
The changes to the law come after 18 people have already died on South Australian roads this year, compared to just four in the same time frame last year.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Ian Parrott said 5,500 were arrested for drink driving last year in the state.
