A Superior man will spend three years in prison for his seventh drunk driving incident.
Jon Thomas Moore, 55, pleaded no contest last week in Douglas County Circuit Court to operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration-seventh offense. He was handed a six year sentence with three years confinement and three years extended supervision. He was also ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation, submit to random urinalysis, use no alcohol, pay a $3,833 fine, provide a DNA sample and install an ignition interlock. His driver’s license was revoked for 36 months.
According to the criminal complaint:
Douglas County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to a report of a person slumped in the driver’s seat of a van on County Road B in the town of Oakland the afternoon of March 8. When deputies located the van, it was being driven northbound on Jacksino Road and stopped at the intersection to County Road V.
The driver, identified as Moore, had a difficult time opening the door and shutting off the van and could not find his license in his wallet without help from a deputy. When asked where he was going, Moore replied, “Jail, I guess.”
When asked to perform field sobriety tests, Moore did not follow directions and barked out unintelligible answers when deputies spoke to him.
The Superior man needed physical assistance to maintain balance while walking into the hospital for a blood draw and into the jail. Moore has six prior convictions for operating while intoxicated, the most recent in 2005.
