ATTICA, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Wyoming County man now admits he was driving drunk on April Fool’s Day this year and lied about his cocaine use under oath.

Robert Sacher was arrested last April with a BAC of .13 percent after State Police spotted him swerving his pickup truck all over Rt. 354 in Attica.

The 44-year-old was already on probation for a 2012 conviction of fifth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

After his DWI arrest, he appeared in court and took the stand, where he accused his probation officer about lying when the officer testified Sacher had admitted using cocaine and testing positive for cocaine. Sacher then denied using cocaine on the witness stand.

Last Thursday, he pleaded guilty to first degree perjury and felony DWI, admitting he lied under oath about his cocaine use.

He was sentenced to two- to four-years in state prison for perjury and one-and-a-third- to four-years for felony DWI. The sentences will run concurrently. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
