Man could look at prison for 3rd DUI
A man is facing prison if the judge doesn’t accept his request for DUI diversion.
Maximillion Stephen Penfield, 28, was arrested in June for DUI third offense.
His previous arrests are from 2010 and 2015, and at the most recent arrest he had a blood alcohol level of .14.
According to the police report, Penfield had a brake light and a taillight out and then rolled a stop sign in front of a deputy.
When he was pulled over they found a half full 40-ounce of Miller High Life and a marijuana pipe.
He had previously had his license revoked for a DUI.
He is facing up to 6 years in prison and up to a $2,000-$5,000 fine.
Penfield will remain on house arrest pending sentencing.
Penfield’s attorney will be requesting DUI diversion, but the judge was not convinced either way.
“It’s this courts position that drunk drivers kill people,” said Judge Tod Young.
■Christina Danielle Calais, 31, was arrested back in December 2015 for possession of a controlled substance.
She has been out of custody since that time.
She was pulled over after driving 60 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone.
She originally was pleading guilty on Tuesday for possession of methamphetamine, until she told the judge that she didn’t know it was in the car.
She could be facing up to 4 years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine, but since she has no criminal history it is likely a mandatory probation case.
The judge didn’t accept her guilty plea and set the matter for trial starting April 3, 2017.
■Randall Crawford, 74, was supposed to be in court on Tuesday for sentencing but he failed to appear.
He was supposed to be sentenced for a Sept. 2015 sales of a controlled substance for selling methamphetamine to an undercover agent.
He is facing up to 6 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
A warrant was issued for his arrest.
