DWI gets 10 years

Peter Kilmer

GUILDERLAND — Peter Kilmer, 56, of Ravena, was sentenced on Wednesday to 10 months in Albany County’s jail, after pleading guilty in February to felony driving-while-intoxicated charges.

On Sept. 20, 2013, on Interstate 87 in the town of Guilderland, State Police officers stopped Kilmer for driving 82 miles per hour in a 55 miles-per-hour work zone; upon talking to Kilmer, officers observed him exhibiting multiple physical signs of intoxication, according to a release from the Albany County District Attorney’s office.

Kilmer failed multiple field sobriety tests, and was taken into custody, where he registered a blood alcohol content of .17, the release said.

Judge Peter A. Lynch also imposed a minimum of one year of license revocation, a $1,000 fine, and the installation of an ignition interlock device for a period of three years following his release from custody.

The case was prosecuted by Vehicular Crimes Unit Bureau Chief Mary Tanner-Richter.
