DUI arrest altercation results in broken police car window

Forty-nine-year-old Lisa Marie Jones was charged with driving under the influence in Dallas and received additional charges when her arrest turned into a struggle, the Rome News-Tribune reported on March 20.

Police pulled Jones over initially for speeding–she was driving 54 mph in a 35 mph zone. Once they did so, they administered a field sobriety test, which she failed. When they tried to arrest her, Jones put up a struggle and ended up kicking out the window of one of the police vehicles. As a result, Jones was not only charged with a DWI, but also obstruction of law enforcement and a felony charge of destruction of government property.

9th DWI charge leads to conviction of Montgomery man

A 53-year-old man from Montgomery County, Texas was sentenced to 30 years in jail after entering a guilty plea for his ninth DWI offense during a jury trial at Conroe’s 221st State District Court on Monday, August 19.

Court records show that Kevin Michael Koch was arrested for the ninth time for DWI on Walden Road near Lake Conroe on September 30, 2011. Assistant District Attorney Vince Santini said Koch’s notorious string of DWI violations, which began in 1980 led to Koch’s most serious conviction to date and prevented his request for probation to be granted.

Santini said that it took the prosecution a lot of time to gather all the DWI records of Koch, which was credited to the hard work of Montgomery County police investigator Heather Cash.

Koch is still being held at the Montgomery County jail, from which he will be transferred to a prison to serve at least 7 years before becoming eligible for probation.

Serving a long prison term for multiple DWI charges is something anyone charged with such a crime in Texas wants to avoid. At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, our lawyers can help you build a strong defense if you have been charged with a DWI offense. Call (214) 845-7007 today.
