TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The chief executive officer of a Tucson high-tech company has been convicted of felony DUI charges.
Pima County prosecutors say John M. Bourque was found guilty by a jury Wednesday.
He was convicted of aggravated driving under the influence with a revoked or suspended license and aggravated DUI with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08% or more.
Bourque is CEO of armor-plate maker Bourque Industries Inc.
He was arrested in the DUI case in September 2009.
Bourque was taken into custody following the verdict, pending a sentencing hearing scheduled for March.
The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/WzFDr3) says Bourque may face an extended sentence of more than seven years as a repeat offender.
He spent more than three years in state prison for aggravated DUI in 2002.
