CUMBERLAND, R.I. (WPRI) — A Cumberland man arrested for driving drunk four times within 31 hours learned his punishment on Monday.
As part of a plea deal, a judge sentenced John Lourenco to four years at the ACI with two to serve, and the rest suspended on probation.
Lourenco, 53, pleaded guilty in February to five misdemeanor charges connected to his four arrests.
Police said he was driving drunk when he crashed his car three times – twice in Cumberland and once in Providence – over a two-day span last September.

Lourenco was also ordered to pay a $3,400 fine, undergo alcohol counseling, and he will lose his license for eight years – two years for each of the four incidents – upon his release from prison.
Once his license is reinstated, he will be required to have an ignition interlock system in his car for five years.
