A 31-year-old Rockport woman was arraigned and held Monday on her second drunken driving offense following her arrest at 1:20 a.m. that morning.
Linsday Polisson of Highland Road pleaded guilty and was sentenced by Judge Joseph Jennings to pay $600 in fines and fees.
Polisson will lose her license for 90 days and must attend an alcohol education program under conditions of the sentencing, according to court documents. Polisson is on probation until June 2014.
Jennings also found Polisson responsible for a marked lanes violation.
Polisson is an assistant conductor on commuter rail trains run by the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Rail Company, but had been on leave since before Monday, according to MBCR spokesman Scott Farmelant.
Polisson was honored in February 2010 as a lifesaver for her efforts to aid a young man who had jumped from a moving train in Lynn. The man had landed on the train platform, breaking his arm so severely that he severed an artery, and Polisson, who had been working as an on-board conductor on the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority’s commuter rail, aided the man.
Gloucester resident Tanaia Chamberlain, 37, was found guilty of shoplifting charges at a pre-trial hearing Monday and ordered to pay fines and $51 in restitution to the owner of the clothing store from which she took the clothing.
Chamberlain was ordered to pay $300 in fines in addition to the restitution.
Chamberlain had tried on clothing at the store, then wore it out of the store, leaving her own clothing and the price tags from the store’s clothing on the floor of the dressing room.
