THREE RIVERS, P.E.I. — A P.E.I. woman who tried several times to have her case dealt with in court was sentenced recently to three days in jail for drunk driving.
Cheryl Ann Blackett appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Georgetown for sentencing.
The court heard Blackett provided breathalyzer samples that were around twice the legal limit.
Along with the jail time, Orr gave Blackett six months or probation, saying the sentence would usually include a fine, but it was the third time the woman was in court trying to deal with the matter.
The delay wasn’t Blackett’s fault, Orr said.
Blackett will be on probation for six months and was ordered to perform 30 hours of community service or pay $10 per hour not completed to the Eastern Kings Health Foundation.
She is also banned from driving for one year.
