Waupaca County criminal sentencing
? Judge Raymond Huber sentenced Michael K. Meyer, 35, Fremont, to 30 months in state prison for a sixth drunken driving offense. Meyer was also assessed $2,213 and his license revoked for 36 months.
At the time of his sentencing, Meyer was already residing at the Dodge Correctional institute in Waupun. He was convicted of a fifth OWI in Outagamie County and sentenced to 13 months in state prison with three years of extended supervision. In October 2010, Meyer completed the earned release program and left prison. After he was charged with a sixth drunken driving offense in Waupaca County, the Outagamie County Circuit Court revoked his extended supervision and sent Meyer back to prison in September 2011.
? Huber sentenced Joshua J. Flynn, 28, Oshkosh to two years in prison and two years extended supervision for a fifth drunken driving offense. Huber said Flynn’s Waupaca County sentence will be concurrent to the two-year prison term Flynn is already serving after being convicted of felony drunken driving in Winnebago County. Flynn was also assessed $1,449 and revoked for 36 months.
? Judge John Hoffmann dismissed and read into the record charges of armed robbery and battery against Jason G. Cepanica, 41, Waupaca. Cepanica also entered Alford pleas on charges of theft and disorderly conduct. In an Alford plea, the defendant asserts innocence but admits the prosecution may have enough evidence for conviction by a jury.
Hoffmann placed Cepanica on one year probation and ordered him to pay $1,442 in restitution and court costs.
