The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

Two peo­ple have been sen­tenced for im­paired driv­ing fol­low­ing tips from the pub­lic.

Nancy Lee Hef­fell, a 51-yearold woman from Rich­mond, was sen­tenced to 14 days in jail for driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

On May 28, po­lice were called to a sin­gle ve­hi­cle crash in Trav­eller’s Rest where they dis­cov­ered a ve­hi­cle up­side down in the ditch with Hef­fell still in­side.

Hef­fell was also given a fine of $1,300 and re­ceived a driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion for 18 months.

Ed­ward Joseph Perry, a 40-year-old man from Tig­nish, was sen­tenced to 60 days in jail fol­low­ing his guilty plea to care and con­trol of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while im­paired.

The po­lice were no­ti­fied by a mem­ber of the pub­lic af­ter they found an un­re­spon­sive male be­hind the wheel of a ve­hi­cle in the Palmer Road Church park­ing lot in St. Louis.

Perry was more than three times the le­gal limit and had pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions for im­paired driv­ing.

Perry was also fined $1,500 and re­ceived a driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion for 24 months.
