High breathalyzer readings lead to jail time for P.E.I. man

A P.E.I. man who was caught driving with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit was sentenced recently to 18 days in jail.

Jason Whitney Barrieau, 39, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown after previously pleading guilty to impaired driving.

Before sentencing Barrieau, Orr said he was driving without a licence because it was suspended at the time.

Along with the jail time, Barrieau must perform 120 hours of community service and he is banned from driving for 18 months.
