BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A Bay City attorney has been sentenced to 18 months of probation for crashing into a pedestrian in 2015 after taking a sleeping aid.

The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2iRgLOq ) Saginaw County District Judge M. Randall Jurrens on Wednesday exceeded the recommended six months of probation for 66-year-old Edward M. Czuprynski.

Jurrens also prohibited Czuprynski from consuming or possessing alcohol or being in a bar while on probation. Czuprynski objected to the condition, saying he could foresee “dirty police officers” seizing the opportunity to follow him in hopes of catching him.

A jury earlier found Czuprynski guilty on a misdemeanor moving violation that caused serious bodily impairment. He was acquitted of a felony in the case.

Czuprynski argued the sleeping aid had not entered his bloodstream when the crash occurred.
