WIND­SOR, N.S. – A New Brunswick woman will serve house ar­rest af­ter plead­ing guilty to an im­paired driv­ing charge.

Linda Moore-Boyle, 64, of Rothe­say, was present in Wind­sor pro­vin­cial court on July 21 when she changed her plea to guilty to a charge of op­er­at­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while her blood al­co­hol level ex­ceeded the le­gal limit. Judge Ronda Van Der Hoek handed Moore-Boyle a oneyear con­di­tional sen­tence in­clud­ing house ar­rest for the first four months, to be fol­lowed by daily cur­few from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. for the fol­low­ing four months. The court im­posed a three-year driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion against her. Moore-Boyle com­mit­ted the of­fence in Fal­mouth on Nov. 18, 2016. She gave breathal­yser read­ings of 180 and 170.

Charges of op­er­at­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while her abil­ity to do so was im­paired by al­co­hol; tak­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle with­out the con­sent of the owner with in­tent to drive it and fail­ing to com­ply with her un­der­tak­ing by fail­ing to ab­stain from the con­sump­tion of al­co­hol or other in­tox­i­cat­ing sub­stances were dis­missed on July 21 with the Crown of­fer­ing no ev­i­dence.
