Salem man gets two years for drunken driving


Machera asked about the people sitting behind Conway in the courtroom — his family, it turns out. His mother was crying.

“How many times can you break that woman’s heart?” Machera asked Conway.

But the judge said he agreed with the prosecutor that Conway is not a good candidate for probation. He imposed a two-year jail term on the drunken driving charge and a concurrent 60-day term for the driving after suspension charge.

“Luckily, you haven’t killed yourself and you haven’t hurt anybody,” said Machera. “I hope the next two years is the last time you’re here.”

Conway will also lose his license for eight years under the law.
