New York Supreme Court Justice Carl J. Landicino, a Yorktown resident, pleaded guilty to a driving while intoxicated charge, according to multiple news reports.
Landicino was stopped on Oct. 17, 2012 on I-87 in the town of Colonie, which is a suburb of Albany, for driving aggressively, police said. A state police trooper saw "physical signs of intoxication," according to a news release issued by Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares, the Journal News reported.
Police said Landicino failed standardized field sobriety testing, and then refused to submit to a chemical test to determine his blood alcohol content.
The man was originally charged with driving while intoxicated and multiple vehicle and traffic law violations.
After his guilty plea on Tuesday, Landicino was sentenced to "a one-year conditional discharge if he successfully completes substance abuse treatment, pays a $500 fine, has an ignition interlock device installed on his vehicle, and attends a victim impact panel and drinking driver program," the paper reported. His license will be suspended for six months.
