Bradenton man gets probation, automatic end

Timothy Andricks, 27, of Bradenton, was sentenced to 12 months probation for driving under the influence.

Andricks’ probation, including a DUI course and a victim-impact panel, will terminate after six months if he completes the terms.

Judge Mark Singer handed down the sentence in November 2017 after Andricks pleaded no contest to a DUI charge of less than 0.15 blood-alcohol content.

The judge clarified the sentence in December 2017 to strike any breath-test result of 0.15 or higher from Andricks’ driving record. According to the police report, Andricks’ tests measured 0.183 and 0.168 BACs.

Pursuant to state law, courts must impose enhanced penalties, including an alcohol-detection interlocking device, if breath tests measure over 0.15. The legal BAC limit is 0.08.

Andricks also was ordered to impound his vehicle for 10 days and perform 50 hours of public work.

Holmes Beach police arrested Andricks for DUI in May 2017 after an officer caught him speeding on Manatee Avenue.

He was assessed more than $2,000 court costs and fines, according to court records.
