A South Range man will spend three years in prison for driving drunk for the eighth time.
Jack W. Moore, 50, pleaded no contest last week in Douglas County Circuit Court to his eighth offense of operating while intoxicated. Counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a motor vehicle while revoked and eighth offense operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration were dismissed.
Moore was sentenced to six years prison, with three years confinement and three years extended supervision. He also was ordered to maintain absolute sobriety, pay a $3,833 fine and undergo treatment as ordered by his probation agent. Moore’s license was revoked for three years and he must take an alcohol assessment and provide a DNA sample.
The charges stem from an Oct. 19 incident. Deputy Mitch Olson of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department was sent to check on a vehicle that had been parked in the middle of Crossover Road in Hawthorne for about half an hour.
The driver, identified as Moore, appeared to be sleeping with his head against the driver’s door. Moore told the deputy he was headed home but had stopped the truck because he was too drunk. After refusing to perform field sobriety tests, Moore blew a 0.25 on a preliminary breath test. Olson also found a glass pipe used for smoking marijuana in a cup holder on the floor of the vehicle.
