Repeat OVI offender sentenced to 15 days in jail, 55 days under house arrest for Austintown crash
A repeat OVI offender in Austintown was sentenced to 15 days in jail and 55 days of house arrest for a crash that involved his car going into a home and cutting power for dozens of nearby residents.
According to court employees, 49-year-old Nicholas Cavucci was convicted of his third OVI offense along with failure to reinstate and failure to control on Monday.
He was sentenced to 180 days in jail with 110 of those days suspended. 15 of those days are to be spent in jail and the other 55 will be spent under house arrest. This will be followed by two years of probation and a two-year driver's license suspension.
The charges stem from a crash back in June on Wickliffe Circle in Austintown when Cavucci's car crashed into a family's home and cut power for many nearby residents.
According to police at the scene, there was a bottle of Vodka only a quarter of the way full in Cavucci's car. Cavucci had admitted to officers that he had been drinking.
