A Red Deer man who recently pleaded guilty to defrauding a local dealership was back in court this week.

In an Edmonton court, Calvin Robert Mirbach, 37, pleaded guilty to driving with a blood alcohol level over .08. He was fined $1,000 and given time served.

He also pleaded guilty to breaching the condition of a recognizance and was fined $150.

Charges of disqualified driving, impaired driving, and two breaches of recognizance were withdrawn.

On March 2 in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench, Mirbach pleaded guilty to one count of fraud over $5,000 in connection with the sale of three vehicles between May and September 2007 at Southside Dodge Chrysler Jeep and RV Centre.

He originally faced more than 90 charges in connection with the theft of dozens of vehicles.

The drunk driving-related charges were laid following his arrest for fraud.
