NOW Atlantic: Smart thinking for a changing world
THREE RIVERS, P.E.I. - A clearly contrite man voiced shame over his decision to drive while impaired.
“I’m sorry,’’ Donald Joseph Rogerson told provincial court in Georgetown recently.
“I dropped the ball and I’m sorry. I’m ashamed of myself…I assure you, you will not see me here again.’’
When asked how he pleads to a charge of failing a breath test after being arrested in Souris on Nov. 10, Rogerson replied: “Sadly, shamefully, guilty.’’
Rogerson told police he had drank two beer and a glass of wine before getting behind the wheel.
The court heard Rogerson was “co-operative and respectful’’ throughout his dealings with the police.
Rogerson apologized to the court and to his family for his decision to drive while impaired.
He was sentenced to five days in jail, fined $1,300 and ordered to pay $390 in victims of crime surcharge. He was also given a driving prohibition.
