Genesee County Court has sentenced its first offender under New York’s Leandra’s Law. Joshua Garcia of Erie County was arrested last December and charged with Felony DWI. Garcia was fined and given probation.
And, under Leandra’s Law, he must install an ignition interlock breathalyzer on every vehicle he may drive.
Anyone who drives that car will have to blow into the device before starting the vehicle. If the interlock detects alcohol, the car will not start.
Garcia will have to pay about $100 a month to maintain the device. It must be installed within the next ten days.
