Grand County Court Report

Editor’s note: The Sky-Hi News is attempting to catch up on the Court Report and make it a regular feature again by publishing the sentencing reports from the District and County courts at Hot Sulphur Springs from September-December 2010. The following are September’s sentencings.

In order to streamline this process, those convicted of driving under the influence and driving while ability impaired will be listed without all the details of their individual sentences unless the sentence entails non-standard conditions. DUI and DWAI sentences often, but not always, include largely suspended jail sentences of up to a year, probation with alcohol supervision, fines, court-ordered alcohol education and therapy, and alcohol abstention requirements.
