Hector Supervisor Justin Boyette has been charged with a felony DWI following an incident where his car was found in a ditch. The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report on State Route 414 in the Town of Hector at around 8:36 p.m. on Thursday, highlighting the gravity of driving under the influence.


The investigation at the scene led to Boyette being charged with DWI after he refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, triggering an automatic $500 fine and a one-year suspension of his license. This stringent action underscores the strict consequences of refusing DUI testing.

This is not Boyette’s first DWI offense, as he has a prior conviction within the last decade, elevating this charge to a felony level. The case serves as a stern reminder of the severe repercussions for repeat DUI offenses, even for public officials.
