County man gets 6th DWI conviction since 1983

November 26, 1997

A Westminster man was found guilty yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court of his sixth drunken-driving offense since 1983.

Larry S. Nusbaum, 45, of the 500 block of Hillside Court pleaded not guilty to charges of drunken driving and possession of

marijuana but agreed not to contest the state's version of what happened when he was arrested April 21 in Finksburg after running a stop sign.

Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. set sentencing for March 2, despite a request by prosecutors that Nusbaum immediately begin serving an agreed-upon 18-month jail term.

Prosecutor David P. Daggett noted Nusbaum's previous convictions for driving while intoxicated from 1983 to 1990 -- telling Burns that with the holidays coming up, it was scary to think that Nusbaum might be back on the roads again.

David Weisgerber, a Westminster attorney representing Nusbaum, told Burns that his client is a single parent and since July has successfully completed two phases of New Life, an alcohol and drug counseling program based in Westminster, and that he will soon complete the third phase.
