A 71-year-old Schenectady man with six previous DWI convictions will spend between one and three years in prison after getting arrested for DWI, driving with an expired inspection sticker and using his cell phone.
According to District Attorney David Soares, Albert Cappadozy will also have a mandatory ignition interlock device for three years, have his license revoked for a year and be required to complete a Victim Impact Panel and Drinking Driver Program.
He was arrested by State Police on April 19 in the Town of Colonie and pleaded guilty on April 19 to two counts of DWI, both felonies.
He admitted to drinking in Troy before getting behind the wheel, failed multiple field sobriety tests and it was determined he had a BAC of .15 approximately an hour after the stop.
He was prosecuted by ADA Mary Tanner-Richter and sentenced by Judge Peter Lynch.
