DWI offense nets weekends in jail
JOHNSTOWN — A city man is headed to jail after pleading guilty recently in Fulton County Court to two driving offenses.
Trey A. Vaughn, 26, of 411 N. Market St., pleaded guilty Oct. 8 before County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye to first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, as part of a plea arrangement.
The defendant will be sentenced at a later date, expected to receive four weekends in the Fulton County Correctional Facility, five years probation, a $1,000 fine, driver’s license revocation, and he must attach an ignition interlock device to his vehicle.
Vaughn was arrested at 10:47 p.m. March 22 by Gloversville police. He was charged with DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, and other vehicle and traffic violations.
Officers conducted a stop on a vehicle driven by Vaughn on South Main Street in Gloversville for traffic violations. After smelling the scent of an alcoholic beverage coming from Vaughn, police conducted a field sobriety test that was positive for driving under the influence of alcohol.
