One-year minimum for Bareis’s drunk driving

Robert Bareis

KNOX — Robert Bareis of Knox was sentenced to one to three years in state prison for driving while intoxicated, according to a release from the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

Albany County Court, with Judge Peter A. Lynch presiding, revoked Bareis’s license for a minimum of one year, fined him $1,000, and ordered the installation of an ignition interlock device for three years after he is released from prison.

Bareis, 54, had pleaded guilty on Jan. 17 to one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated, a felony.

Police noticed Bareis driving on Thompson’s Lake Road on July 28 “committing multiple vehicle and traffic violations,” the release says; he failed field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol content of .20 percent.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney David Szalda of the Vehicular Crimes Unit.
