(POCATELLO, ID) – A Fort Hall man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for multiple drunk driving offenses.
Leland Ponzo was arrested last fall for driving under the influence. It was Ponzo’s third felony DUI, and his seventh drunk driving conviction in the past fifteen years. Ponzo’s attorney noted his desire to change and requested an out-of-state treatment program as an alternative to prison time. However, Judge Robert Naftz disagreed, citing the risks associated with Ponzo reoffending. He could be eligible for parole as early as 2017.
