N.B. woman sentenced to house arrest for breathalyser offence in N.S.
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.
