ALBION – A Lyndonville resident was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in state prison today for driving while intoxicated, his second DWI.

Jeremy H. Boyce, 30, of 32 Maple Ave. was charged on March 31 with DWI. He also faced charges of failure to keep right, drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle, failure to use an interlock device, aggravated unlicensed operator, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.

In addition to his prison sentence, Boyce was fined $2,500 by County Court Judge James Punch. Boyce has a year to pay the fine. He also lost his driver’s license for a year and must use interlock ignition device for three years once he’s released from prison.

Boyce told the court he will work hard to change his life and make better decisions in the future.

In other cases in county court today:

Robert W. Tetrault, 32, of Albion pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree assault and third-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He could be sentenced to a maximum of 2 to 4 years in state prison or a minimum of 1 ½ to 3 years.

Tetrault had a knife when he was fighting with his brother Chris Tetrault on May 23. Chris’s wife Wendy attempted to intervene in the fight and suffered “a severe laceration across her hand” from the knife, District Attorney Joe Cardone said.
