Driving On Road Under Construction Gets Man Seventh Drunken Driving Conviction

Driving on State Highway 26 in the Town of Rosendale while it was under construction leads to an Iowa man’s 7th drunken driving conviction. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says a Sheriff’s deputy pulled Joseph Rogers over on the road in May of 2015. At the time the road was closed because it was under construction. He says Rogers had a blood alcohol level of .133 or more than six times the legal limit for a repeat drunken driver. Rogers told the deputy he was on his way from Algoma to Iowa and even said he had stopped at a bar in Appleton for some drinks. Judge Peter Grimm recently sentenced Rogers to 3 years and 9 months in prison.
