A Hailey man was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail and placed on probation for three years after pleading guilty in April to felony driving under the influence.
Filiberto Solis-Vidal, 49, was sentenced in Blaine County 5th District Court. Judge Robert J. Elgee gave Solis-Vidal credit for two days already served in jail and authorized work release while Solis-Vidal is incarcerated.
Further, Elgee suspended Solis-Vidal’s driver’s license for one year, fined him $2,000 and ordered that he attend an “intensive outpatient class” for alcohol abuse. Elgee did not order attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings but said that decision would be left to the defendant’s probation officer.
Under the terms of probation, Elgee told Solis-Vidal that “you are not to drink at all.”
Solis-Vidal was charged with a felony because of two prior misdemeanor DUI convictions. The felony charge resulted from an arrest on July 13, 2013 by Bellevue Marshal Larry Clark. After serving two days in jail following the arrest, Solis-Vidal was released on $15,000 bond.
