A young motorist who ended up in a field has pleaded guilty to failing a breathalyzer.
Darien Burleigh, 18, was sentenced to 15 days in jail to be served on consecutive weekends.
He is also prohibited from operating a motor vehicle for two years.
Chief Provincial Court Judge Nancy Orr noted concern that Burleigh was under the legal drinking age and was operating under a graduated licence, which calls for motorists to have a zero-blood alcohol count when driving.
The incident occurred in the early evening of July 15 in Elmwood.
Burleigh told the court he was not drinking that day but had consumed a lot of alcohol the night before.
Orr told Burleigh to expect high insurance “if you can get it’’ when he is allowed to drive again.
