JOHNSTOWN — A Gloversville motorist convicted of being unlicensed and intoxicated will be spending several weekends in the Fulton County Correctional Facility.

He also received five years probation, he must affix an ignition interlock device to his vehicle, must attend a Victim Impact Panel, and have his driver’s license revoked for six months.

The sentence was based on his Sept. 2 guilty plea arrangement to felony first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.

Smith was arrested Feb. 26 by Fulton County sheriff deputies with felony DWI, felony first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, aggravated DWI for having a blood-alcohol content of 0.18 percent or higher, and violating an interlock restriction.
