A six-member jury convicted Adam Roy Haynes, 51, of DUI with Property Damage. He was sentenced to a year in county jail, the maximum sentence for a first-degree misdemeanor.
In December 2019, Sumter County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a suspicious person call and found Haynes behind the wheel of a vehicle. He appeared confused and disoriented. When Haynes complied with commands to exit the vehicle, it was apparent he had urinated himself. Deputies asked Haynes to do Field Sobriety Exercises and provide a breath sample. Haynes blew .148 and .134.
Haynes was found guilty at trial and sentenced to a year in jail. In addition to incarceration, Haynes’ license was revoked for a year, he must have an ignition interlock device for six months, his car will be impounded for 10 days, and he must attend the Victim Impact Panel. Before trial, Haynes pled guilty to a second count: Violation of a Condition of Pretrial Release. He was given a concurrent jail sentence for that charge.
Assistant State Attorneys Scott Ragan and Matt Bryan prosecuted the case.
