A former Nova Scotia politician has been found guilty of driving over the legal limit. Judge Frank Hoskins of provincial court fined Trevor Zinck one-thousand dollars and prohibited him from driving for one year effective immediately. Crown attorney Melanie Perry explained why Zinck got the minimum sentence. (Zinck testified last month that after drinking at a bowling alley, he initially got in the driver's seat and began driving, but he quickly switched places and allowed a friend to take the wheel. The judge says he didn't believe Zinck's testimony.)
