CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Waynesboro, Pa., man convicted of five separate counts of driving under the influence was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to 11 months to 11 1/2 years in state prison.

Timothy Allen Geesaman, 26, of 424 S. Potomac St., pleaded guilty to the charges in February, according to court documents. Pennsylvania State and municipal police filed the charges between June 7, 2005, and Dec. 15, 2005, according to the affidavits of probable cause.

Waynesboro police charged Geesaman with driving under the influence on June 7 when his blood alcohol level was measured at 0.171 percent. The legal limit for intoxication in Pennsylvania is 0.08 percent.

On June 17, he was charged by state police. His blood alcohol content in that instance was 0.162 percent, police said.

Washington Township police charged Geesaman for an Oct. 10 incident in which his vehicle ran out of gas. His blood alcohol level was 0.188 percent, police said.

Waynesboro police charged him again Nov. 28, when his blood alcohol level was 0.117 percent, police said.

On Dec. 15, 2005, Waynesboro police said Geesaman's pickup truck was stuck in a yard. His alcohol level in that case was 0.18 percent, police said. The affidavit stated Geesaman asked the arresting officer if he could "settle this with a $5,000 fine, just between us."

Judge Carol Van Horn imposed fines and fees of more than $8,000 in the cases. Geesaman was given credit for time served between Jan. 17 and Wednesday.
