YOUNGSTOWN -- Michael J. Campy will no longer be allowed to legally drive a vehicle once he gets out of prison after being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Judge R. Scott Krichbaum of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court sentenced Campy, 33, of Gary Drive, North Lima, to a year in prison at a hearing Thursday. The judge not only suspended Campy's driver's license for life, but also ordered Campy's vehicle to be forfeited to the state, and he must pay court costs and an $800 fine.
He will be placed on three years' parole after he serves his prison time.
He was arrested Aug. 27, 2004, after a traffic stop by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper in Boardman Township. Reports said the trooper saw Campy run a red light and he pulled him over on Southern Boulevard.
The report said Campy admitted he had been drinking. Campy's breath alcohol test registered 0.132; the legal limit for intoxication in Ohio is 0.08. Court records said this was Campy's fourth DUI offense in six years.
