Man receives prison in felony DUI
A South Lake Tahoe man was sentenced to 2-5 years in prison for a subsequent felony DUI on Tuesday.
Jesus Ismael Estrada Uribe, 36, admitted the charge, which stems from his Aug. 29 arrest after a drunken wreck at Highway 50 and Elks Point Road.
Estrada Uribe was previously convicted Jan. 31, 2010, of felony driving under the influence in connection with an El Dorado County collision in which someone was injured.
While he left the scene of the collision, he didn’t go far and was cooperative with deputies who arrested him, according to attorney Kris Brown.
No one was injured in the Highway 50 wreck. In addition to the prison sentence, Estrada Uribe was fined $2,000 and will be deported when he is released from prison.
• A man who was on parole after serving time on a felony drug charge was ordered back to prison for 1-3 years on Tuesday.
Casey Sean White, 36, has a significant number of drug felony convictions on his record.
Attorney Brian Filter argued that his record showed that White was unable to break the cycle of addiction and incarceration that resulted in nine felony convictions.
He asked the judge to consider ordering White into treatment programs that would help him get clean.
White was arrested Sept. 8 after a traffic stop. Deputies located 30 grams of methamphetamine, which District Judge Tod Young described as an absurd amount.
The judge agreed that sending White to prison hasn’t stopped him from using methamphetamine.
“He’s not going to be a sober guy when he comes out,” Young said. “Clearly, what we have tried all of these nine times has not worked. Maybe it’s time to treat you as a habitual felon, but it’s not where we are now.”
Should White’s parole be revoked, which is likely, he will have to finish his sentence for possession of a controlled substance before he can begin the new sentence.
