Chad Joseph Gaudet sentenced by two separate judges to more jail on top of time he is already serving

A man who got caught twice for drunk driving-related offences recently had 33 days added to time he is already serving.

Chad Jospeh Gaudet appeared in provincial court in Charlottetown twice in one week for sentencing after he was caught on two separate occasions.

On Dec. 13, 2015, Gaudet was found in his vehicle and breathalyzer samples later showed his blood alcohol level was above the legal limit.

He has been in custody since February on an unrelated matter.

On Monday, Chief Judge Nancy Orr sentenced him to three days in jail consecutive to any other time he is serving.

In a separate incident, Gaudet was caught driving drunk when his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

On Thursday, Judge John Douglas sentenced Gaudet to 30 days in jail for that offence.

Gaudet must pay a $1,000 fine and $400 in victim surcharges.

He is banned from driving for two years.
