ALBANY, N.Y. – A Ravena man who pleaded guilty to driving with a license that had been suspended 15 times previously has been sentenced to prison.
Bryan Irving, 40, of Ravena, was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in state prison in Albany County Court Thursday.
On September 25, 2014, Irving pleaded guilty to one felony count of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree.
On July 31, 2014, at 3:24 p.m., officers from the Coeymans Police Department initiated a traffic stop on a 1995 Lexus that was being driven by Irving on Route 9W in the Town of Ravena.
Police uncovered that he was driving with a suspended license, and that his driver’s license had previously been suspended 15 times for multiple traffic violations.
At the time of the stop, Irving was under the supervision of probation for a previous drug conviction. He was also sentenced Thursday to a concurrent term of 3 years in state prison for a violation of probation charge.
