Williams Pleads Guilty to DWI

GUILDERLAND — Glen Williams, of Shelton, Conn., was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Guilderland in November, and he pleaded guilty before Judge Stephen Herrick in Albany County Court on Wednesday.

On Nov. 13, 2013, Williams was stopped for speeding on Interstate 90, in Guilderland, and, while talking to officers, he admitted he had consumed a few drinks at his home, in Connecticut, and was on his way to Utica to meet friends, according to a release from the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

He failed multiple field-sobriety tests and registered a blood-alcohol content of .17.

On March 19, he pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated, per se — based solely on body chemistry — and one count of driving while intoxicated, both felonies, and one count of speeding, a vehicle and traffic law infraction, said the release.

Williams will be sentenced on Aug. 6, and faces up to one-and-two-thirds to five years in state prison, five years of felony probation, a $2,000 fine, the installation of an ignition interlock device for three years, and a minimum of 18 months of license revocation, the release said.

The case is being prosecuted by Vehicular Crimes Bureau Chief Mary Tanner-Richter.
