A Stevens Point woman will spend the next two and a half years in prison following a conviction for her 5th drunk driving offense.
Raquel Hurd, 44, reached a plea deal with prosecutors Thursday. As result a charge of operating with prohibited alcohol concentration and possession of THC were dismissed due to Hurd pleading no contest to her 5th OWI charge.
According to the Stevens Point Journal, Hurd also arrived intoxicated to her sentencing hearing.
Upon her release from prison, she'll spend two years on extended supervision. Hurd will also have her license revoked 36 months and must also have her car equiped with an interlock device.
According to the criminal complaint, obtained by the Stevens Point Journal, Hurd was pulled over on October 11, 2012 after a deputy noticed Hurd committing several traffic violations.
Her preliminary BAC was .237. Due to past OWI convictions, Hurd may not have a BAC over .02.
She will receive credit for 169 days she has already spent in jail.
