The girl's mother is Tony Award-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles.

Burns - who had eight infringement tickets from red-light and speed cameras prior to the crash and was advised by doctors not to drive - faced 15 years in jail, but was freed in September on a United States $75,000 bond, She was scheduled to appear in court again on November 20.
