A Montague man who drove his car off the road while he was drunk was sentenced to 22 days in jail Thursday.
In a news release, Kings District RCMP said Michael Lester McCarthy appeared before Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Georgetown where he pleaded guilty to drunk driving.
On Feb. 16, the RCMP responded to a 911 call of a car that had gone off the road in Lower Montague.
Breathalyzer samples showed McCarthy’s blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.
Along with the jail time, Orr ordered McCarthry to pay $1,690 for a fine and victim surcharge.
He is also banned from driving for one year.
Roy Jamieson of Gasperaux also appeared before Orr Thursday where she sentenced him to 90 days in jail after the RCMP seized 52 mature marijuana plants from his home in September.
Jamieson will also be on probation for two years after his release.
