Yvon Gingras, Quebec Man, Drunk Driving Charge Count At 24
QUEBEC - An elderly man pleaded guilty today to his 24th charge of drunk driving in nearly a half-century.
Yvon Gingras also pleaded guilty to violating a court order forbidding him from driving a car.
Gingras' record for driving under the influence goes back to his first arrest for the crime in 1965.
The 67-year-old resident of St-Ubald, near Quebec City, asked to be released on bail in the current incident but he was refused.
The judge cited his lengthy record of driving while intoxicated.
Sentencing arguments will begin on Nov. 28.
