Scarborough town councilor accused of drunken driving offered plea deal

The Associated Press

SCARBOROUGH, Maine — Prosecutors and defense lawyers say the drunken driving case against a Scarborough town councilor is likely to be settled through a plea agreement before it goes to trial.

A lawyer for Councilor Judith Roy met with a prosecutor Tuesday to discuss a plea deal, although no agreement was reached.

A motorist reported an erratic driver on Black Point Road around 10 p.m. on Sept. 17. Police say the motorist followed Roy to her home, where they met an officer.

Roy was charged with operating under the influence and operating under the influence with a blood alcohol content of 0.15 percent.

A prosecutor tells The Portland Press Herald that he offered to let the 68-year-old Roy plead guilty to operating under the influence and drop the other charge.
