No-contest pleas in 12th Circuit Court ended with a judge finding a man guilty for driving under the influence and an “adjudication withheld” on a driver’s license violation.
Alexander Dorrian, 23, of Fort Myers, pleaded no contest Feb. 26 to the DUI, as well as driving with an invalid license, after a Holmes Beach arrest in November 2017.
Judge Renee Inman entered the findings and sentenced Dorrian to 12 months probation, including completing a DUI course, victim-impact panel and 50 hours of public service.
Dorrian’s driver’s license was suspended for six months and his vehicle was impounded for 10 days.
Inman also ordered an alcohol-detection ignition device installed in Dorrian’s vehicle for six months.
Dorrian was stopped Nov. 7, 2017, by HBPD after a motorist’s tip. A responding officer observed the vehicle traveling at a high speed and swerving across the road in the 7600 block of Palm Drive.
Fines and court costs of $2,891 were assessed, of which $1,506 was paid, according to court records.
