Two repeat drunk drivers will spend time in jail following sentencing hearings in Waupaca County Circuit Court. 42 year old Dawn J. Bowden of Appleton was ordered to serve 9 months behind bars following conviction on her 5th operating while intoxicated offense. Bowden was arrested in January 2017 in the Town of Farmington, driving with a blood-alcohol concentration of .17 percent. Along with the jail time, Bowden also had her license revoked for 24 months, must install an ignition interlock device for 24 months, and was ordered to pay fines and costs of 31-hundred dollars.
Meanwhile, 36 year old Tyler W. Biese of Weyauwega received a jail term of 90 days, with 45 days stayed, on a 2nd drunk driving conviction. Biese entered a no contest plea to the charge, with a deferred prosecution agreement put in place on a felony count of fleeing an officer. Biese was arrested last April in the Town of Mukwa, with a blood-alcohol level of .16 percent. He was also ordered to pay a 500-dollar fine, had his license revoked for 14 months, and must install an ignition interlock for 14 months.
