A State College podiatrist was sentenced to county jail and probation Thursday after entering guilty pleas to several DUI charges.
Sharon Pletcher, 58, appeared before Centre County Judge Jonathan Grine and was sentenced to two consecutive 90-day terms at the Centre County Correctional Facility, with a maximum of five years. She also faces 18 months of probation and is required to pay $7,050 in fines.
Pletcher is also prohibited from alcohol, non-prescribed drugs and offensive weapons. Her driving privileges have been suspended for a length of time to be determined by PennDOT.
Pletcher is required to serve one day of community service. She must attend DUI court for five years.
Following her time served at CCCF, she must complete 275 days of in-home detention. Intensive supervision will follow for six months.
Pletcher’s attorney, William Leonard, recounted Pletcher’s three DUI incidents prior to her sentencing. The first involved Pletcher striking the side of the building, while the other two found Pletcher to have a blood alcohol content more than .16 percent, which is the highest tier in Pennsylvania.
Pletcher was previously told she “needs to stay away from alcohol” by a Clearfield County judge in July.
