BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — A southern New Jersey man who racked up six DWI charges in three months last year has been taken off the road for even more time.
A judge in Cumberland County on Friday revoked the driving privileges of Anderson Sotomayor for 121/2 years. Sotomayor was banned for driving for 33 years in 2012 by a different judge. He also will serve a year in county jail after pleading guilty to cocaine possession and contempt.
The Press of Atlantic City reports Sotomayor as charged with DWI three times last April, twice in May and once in June. The newspaper reports state Motor Vehicle Commission records show he also had drunken driving convictions in 1989 and 1992.
Sotomayor’s case spurred some lawmakers last year to propose legislation toughening drunken driving laws.
