Palmyra Supervisor pleads guilty to DWI

Palmyra’s supervisor, who went off the thruway last month and drove into two highway signs, pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated last night in Manchester Town Court. Following his conviction, Kenneth Miller, 54, of 1981 Maple Ave., was sentenced by Manchester Town Justice Peter Butler to pay $500 in fines, $400 in surcharges and had his license revoked for six months. Miller was driving east on I-90 when, at about 10:25 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, he attempted to pull off into the Clifton Springs Service area — three miles past the Manchester-Palmyra Exit, No. 42.“When he entered the service area, he went onto the right shoulder and into the street signs,” said Sgt. Lori Lampson of the Troop T Syracuse barracks. No one was injured in the incident, she said. Miller, troopers said, allegedly had a blood alcohol content of .23 percent — nearly three time the .08 percent legal limit.
