State Representative Jeff Wood will spend 60-days behind bars followed by two years on probation.
In September of last year, Wood was arrested in Rib Mountain in Marathon County, for driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
Deputies with the State Patrol say they found a prescription bottle of anxiety medication in his car that was filled the night before and out of 45 pills, only 7 were still in the bottle.
In court Tuesday, Wood pleaded no contest to the OWI charge.
He was found guilty and sentenced to 60-days in jail and, two years on probation and also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine.
He also served jail time last year for impaired driving in Columbia County.
The Chippewa Falls Independent told the judge that he's sober and attends alcoholic anonymous meetings.
