A 66-year-old Rockport man was sentenced April 26 in Knox County Superior Court to four months in jail for drunken driving offenses.

Stephen Rhoades was charged with operating under the influence and reckless conduct following a September arrest in Rockport.

Court documents state Rhoades created a substantial risk of bodily injury with the use of a deadly weapon — a motor vehicle.

Rhoades was originally charged with aggravated criminal OUI due to a 1976 conviction of reckless homicide in Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta.

The 2012 charge was reduced from a class B to class D offense.

Rhoades, represented by Rockland attorney Robert Levine, was originally sentenced to 364 days for the reckless conduct charge and 90 days for the OUI charge. All but 120 days in jail — for both offenses — was suspended.

Rhoades will be subject to one year of probation upon his release.
