8/26/17 – A Horicon woman who injured a three-year-old passenger in a drunk driving crash has entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors. Noelle Deehr was convicted yesterday on a felony count of OWI Causing Injury to a Passenger Under Age 16. A second felony count of Operating With a Prohibited Alcohol Content Causing Injury was dismissed while a misdemeanor count of Obstructing An Officer was dismissed but read into the record. The 33-year-old was traveling westbound on Town Road MM in the Town of Ashippun last September when she lost control of her SUV, entered the south ditch, struck a steep embankment and then a utility pole. The three-year old was ejected and suffered non-life threatening injuries. The child was flown from the scene by Flight for Life. Deehr was uninjured. She was sentenced yesterday to one year in the Dodge County Jail with work release privileges and the possibility of electronic monitoring. Deehr was also placed on probation for ten years, must maintain absolute sobriety, and lost her license for ten years followed by ten years of blowing into an ignition interlock device to start her vehicle.
