SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Las Cruces man has been ordered to wear an ankle monitor after pleading guilty to his sixth drunken-driving charge.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://goo.gl/VMvjrr) a Santa Fe judge ordered Jacob Salazar on Monday to wear the ankle monitor while he completes a six-month residential substance-abuse treatment program.

The 52-year-old Salazar reached the plea deal in April but was sent to prison for a 60-day evaluation before the judge pronounced his sentence.

Salazar’s plea stemmed from an aggravated drunken driving charge he picked up in Santa Fe County when he was caught driving with a blood alcohol level above 0.16 - more than twice the level of presumed intoxication in New Mexico.

Salazar has five other drunken-driving convictions since 1994.
