Guilty Plea in D.W.I. Crash

Thu, 03/02/2023 - 10:18

In a case dating back to October of 2021, East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky sentenced Wilson Sanchez-Briceno on Feb. 15 to a six-month revocation of his driver’s license and two years’ probation after he pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while intoxicated, along with a stop-sign ticket.

The 29-year-old defendant, who lives in East Hampton, originally faced two misdemeanor D.W.I. charges, including one levied when a breath test indicates an over-the-limit reading of alcohol in a driver’s blood. The latter charge plus another traffic violation were dropped, however. They stemmed from an incident around 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 10, 2021, in which town police said Mr. Sanchez-Briceno drove his Ford sedan through the intersection of Abraham’s Path and Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton and crashed into a telephone pole.

As an additional consequence, Justice Tekulsky said, Mr. Sanchez-Briceno will have to have an ignition interlock device installed in his car. He is also to pay a total of $1,550 in fines and surcharges, and has 90 days to do so.
