WAYNESBURG – Two people charged with driving under the influence of alcohol were sentenced last week by Greene County Judge Farley Toothman.

William Albert Bowser Jr., 26, of Nemacolin, who was found guilty of DUI in a non-jury trial July 11, was sentenced to 3 to 6 months in jail and fined $1,000.

Bowser was given credit for time served. He had been jailed since Nov. 29. On probation for a pervious offense, Bowser was released to the state Department of Corrections.

Bowser was arrested Nov. 28 after he allegedly assaulted a woman in Cumberland Township. He refused a blood-alcohol test. A charge of harassment and simple assault were earlier withdrawn.

Lori Lee White, 49, of 161 Bowser Road, Clarksville, pleaded guilty to DUI and three summary traffic violations. She was arrested following a traffic stop on Nov. 13. She had a blood-alcohol level of .197 percent.

White was sentenced to 72 hours to 6 months in jail, fined $1,075 and ordered to perform 25 hours of community service.
