Drunk driver jailed

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ISLAND -

A Lower Mon­tague man who hit an­other ve­hi­cle while driv­ing drunk was sen­tenced re­cently to 20 days in jail.

Joseph Leith Cur­ran, 60, ap­peared be­fore Chief Judge Nancy Orr in pro­vin­cial court in Ge­orge­town for sen­tenc­ing after pre­vi­ously en­ter­ing a guilty plea.

The court heard Cur­ran was in­volved in a mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion after com­ing over a blind hill. Cur­ran’s blood al­co­hol level was around twice the le­gal limit.

Along with the jail time, Cur­ran must pay a $1,000 fine and $300 vic­tim sur­charge.

He is banned from driv­ing for one year.
