LOCKPORT – A Cambria drunken driver was sentenced Friday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas to months of weekends in jail, five years’ probation and fines and fees totaling $5,520.

Donald J. Rolfe, 43, of North Ridge Road, had pleaded guilty to felony driving while intoxicated in the wake of his April 29 arrest on Youngstown-Wilson Road, where his blood alcohol content was measured at 0.20 percent.

In another case Friday, Melvin M. Early Jr., 39, of Norfolk Avenue, Buffalo, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DWI and was scheduled for sentencing by Farkas on May 3. Early was pulled over Aug. 12 in Niagara Falls and originally was charged with a felony.

Deputy District Attorney Theodore A. Brenner told Farkas he was offering a misdemeanor plea because Early is awaiting sentencing on a DWI felony in Erie County Court March 14.
