Suspended WMUR reporter Audrey Cox back in court for felony drunken driving charges


Suspended WMUR reporter Audrey Cox was back in court Wednesday for a dispositional hearing.

Cox, of Lowell, Mass., was indicted on three felony charges following a September accident on Ocean Boulevard in Hampton.

Police said Cox was drunk when she struck an elderly pedestrian in the break down lane.

“Ms. Cox feels awful,” said Andrew Cotrupi, an attorney representing her. “She has a mother the same age as the victim, but alcohol and drugs had nothing to do with the accident. We believe that will be established at trial.”

Cox pleaded not guilty to the charges in December.
