Dryden Woman Facing Felony DWI Found Without Ignition Interlock
A Dryden woman is facing a felony D-W-I charge after she was found operating a vehicle without a required ignition interlock device designed to prevent her from drinking and driving.
On Sunday State Troopers arrested 25 year old Amanda E. Stanton of Dryden, Troopers stopped Stanton for an unspecified vehicle and traffic violation on Route 38 in Dryden.
During the stop it was determined that she was under the influence of alcohol; a breath screening test later revealed her blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.
A check of Stanton’s criminal record showed that she had been convicted of a misdemeanor count of D-W-I in Dryden Town Court in February of this year.
As a condition of her previous D-W-I conviction Stanton was required to have a device installed on any vehicle that she operates that prevents it from operating if it detects the presence of alcohol.
Stanton was released on tickets and is due in Dryden Town court on December 30th.
