Man with 16 OVI arrests gets in-house treatment sentence


YOUNGSTOWN — An Austintown man who has 16 arrests for operating a vehicle impaired will spend six months in an in-house program at the Community Corrections Association.

David Black, 58, of Ohltown Road, appeared this morning in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court, where Judge Maureen A. Sweeney imposed a sentence of five years’ probation.

Completion of the in-house program is a term of his probation.

Black is required to complete alcohol treatment while at CCA and will also lose his driver’s license for three years.

Black’s latest OVI charge resulted from a traffic stop in Campbell when Black failed a series of field-sobriety tests after police found him with an open container of beer in the car.

Black’s first OVI citation occurred in 1990, according to court records.
