A New York man who is currently on the waiting list for a new liver appeared in court yesterday to plead guilty to felony drunk driving. He wasn’t just a little tipsy when he was arrested either — he registered a blood alcohol level of 0.37 percent, which is more than four times the legal limit for operating a vehicle.
Louis J. Converso Jr. had been previously convicted of DWI in 2003 and pleaded guilty this time in order to limit the prison sentence he may receive. The judge warned him not to drive under any circumstances or she will immediately sentence him to the maximum of 15 months to four years behind bars. His sentencing is currently scheduled for December 1.
