Wyocena Man Sentenced For 13th Drunk Driving Offense

(Wyocena) A Wyocena man will spend five years behind bars for his 13th drunk driving offense. Robert Dolgner was also sentenced to another five years of extended supervision after pleading no contest this week in Columbia County court to a felony count of Operating While Intoxicated Tenth Offense or More. A second felony count of driving with a Prohibited Alcohol Content and a misdemeanor Operating While Revoked charge were dismissed. The 62-year-old had just gotten out of prison for his 12th OWI in May and was arrested while still on extended supervision. The arresting officer says Dolgner was observed swerving from one lane to another before pulling into the private driveway of someone he reportedly did not know. Dolgner apparently had trouble rolling down his window when approached by law enforcement and denied having anything to drink before confessing to having one beer. His preliminary breath test was point-one-three (.13). When he is released from prison, Dolgner will spend three years without a driver’s license followed by three years of blowing into a tube to start his car.
