Lockport man imprisoned again for drunken driving

LOCKPORT – Shaun C. Harris has been to state prison before for drunken driving. State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr., saying Harris had done nothing to show he was interested in changing his life, sent him back to prison on Tuesday.

Harris, 37, of Robinson Road, Town of Lockport, pleaded guilty Nov. 18 to a felony count of driving while intoxicated after his Sept. 20 arrest in Wheatfield. His blood alcohol content was measured at 0.11 percent.

Harris will have a year to pay $1,605 in fines and fees after his release from a prison term of 16 months to four years. Kloch said Harris had not been able to hold a job or complete a counseling course.

Harris served three years in prison on a 2010 conviction for second-degree vehicular assault. He was drunk at the wheel when he was involved in a head-on crash on Shawnee Road in Wheatfield that severely injured the other driver and Harris’ own passenger.
