AUGUSTA, Maine — A local man is facing up to 10 years behind bars after he was convicted on his ninth drunken-driving charge Tuesday.

Peter Dubord, 54, will be sentenced at a later date that has not been determined, Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney said.

Dubord was immediately taken into custody following the conviction, and will remain held without bail until his sentencing, Maloney said.

The district attorney said the ninth drunken-driving offense occurred last September in China. Dubord’s drunken-driving record dates back to 1979, and the charge was increased to a Class B felony due to prior convictions.

Maloney said the case was an important one because of Dubord’s potential risk to the public.
