DWI Sentence

A Nodaway county man is sentenced to 8 years in state prison as a chronic offender for driving while intoxicated.

Lewis Blackney Junior of Clearmont was ordered to prison more than a year after he was pulled over on Hallmark Road in Nodaway county. He had been convicted of drinking and driving 3 times before. He's also been assigned to complete the long term treatment program while in prison. Nodaway county prosecuting attorney Bob Rice says the only offer he gives for felony DWI offenders is prison time, adding driving while intoxicated in Nodaway county will not be tolerated.
