Pirtle Escape Charge Sentencing

(Juneau) A Fond du Lac man was sentenced yesterday (Tuesday) to one year in jail for failing to return to the Dodge County Jail. David Pirtle entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Escape. Jail staff could not reach Pirtle in January when his GPS tracker indicated he was not where he was supposed to be. After multiple failed attempts to reach Pirtle, an arrest warrant was issued. Pirtle was eventually arrested by deputies in Fond du Lac on February 13th. The 51-year-old was serving a 120-day and 60-day Huber sentence on GPS monitoring for Operating While Intoxicated and Resisting an Officer.
