JOHNSTOWN - A Fonda man was sentenced Thursday to 1 1/2 to three years in state prison.
Ford W. Wolfe Jr., 38, was sentenced by Judge Polly A. Hoye as part of a plea arrangement.
Sentencing was based on Wolfe's June 20 guilty plea to counts of felony DWI and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. The guilty plea, as part of a plea arrangement, was in full satisfaction of two different criminal cases against him. In addition to serving 1 1/2 to three years in state prison, he must pay a $1,000 fine in a separate criminal contempt case.
State police charged Wolfe on March 16 on Route 30A in the town with DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Troopers said at the time that both counts were felonies because Wolfe has two previous DWI convictions in the last 10 years. In that incident, he also was charged with refusal to take a breath test and using a vehicle without an interlock device, as well as failure to keep right and moving from a lane unsafely.
Wolfe also had been charged Dec. 19 with criminal contempt. The details of that case were unavailable.
