On June 23, 2010, the California Psychology Board placed Christopher M. Saindon, Ph.D. on probation for five years based on having been criminally convicted of driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% and inflicting great bodily injury to another.
The Board’s document explains that the police officer at the scene of a collision involving Saindon determined that “Due to [his] level of intoxication, [he] was driving [his vehicle] northbound in the southbound traffic lane and the front end of [his vehicle] collided into the front end of [the other driver’s vehicle].”
He was sentenced in January 2009 to three years in prison, with imposition of sentenced suspended, and was placed on a three-year formal probation with terms including enrollment in a live-in sober living program for 365 days and payment of a fine of $1,565.
