PARIS — A former member of the Paris Utility District board of trustees pleaded guilty Thursday morning in Oxford County Superior Court to operating under the influence.

Marjorie Risica of 65 Oxford St., Paris, had originally pleaded not guilty to the charge at her June 23 court appearance.

Assistant District Attorney Richard Beauchesne said Risica will be fined $1,000, and will have her license revoked for 150 days.

On March 29, officers responded to emergency calls about a vehicle almost hitting a rock and later bouncing off a guardrail on Brett Hill Road in Paris. They found Risica sitting in her car, which was parked in her driveway.

A test showed her blood alcohol content was 0.24 percent, which is three times the legal limit, according to a police complaint.

The vehicle was registered to her husband, Mike Risica.

Marjorie Risica resigned from the Paris Utility District board of trustees shortly after her arrest.
