Two drunk drivers sentenced

JOHNSTOWN — Two convicted drunk drivers were sentenced this week in Fulton County Court.

Peter R. Anadio, 53, of 139 Highlands Road, Gloversville, was sentenced Tuesday by Judge Louise K. Sira to five years probation; $1,500 fine, installation of an ignition interlock device, and a one-year driver’s license revocation, as part of a plea arrangement.

The sentence was based on Anadio’s Aug. 19 guilty plea to one felony count of driving while intoxicated.

Anadio was charged with DWI by Gloversville police following a traffic stop on April 5.

Officers said Anadio was charged after an investigation revealed he was intoxicated, and he had a prior conviction for DWI.

In another drinking and driving case, John D. Johnson Jr., 49, of Walnut Street, Johnstown, was sentenced Thursday by Judge Polly A. Hoye to one year in the county jail, three years of an ignition interlock device attached to vehicles, a $1,000 fine, and one-year driver’s license revocation. He was sentenced as part of a plea arrangement.

The sentence was based on Johnson’s Aug. 14 guilty plea to felony DWI.

He was arrested March 28.

Also this week, Cindy Nelson, 44, of Route 30, Amsterdam, was sentenced Thursday by Sira to time served, five years probation and restitution of $1,732 as part of a plea arrangement.

Her sentence was based on her Aug. 8 guilty plea to felony first-degree attempted identity theft.

Nelson was arrested Jan. 23.
