Fox Lake man charged with fifth OWI

JUNEAU — A 48-year-old Fox Lake man appeared in court on Tuesday charged with his fifth offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Marty S. Madeiros could face up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted of the charge. He appeared before Dodge County Court Judge Steven Bauer. Madeiros was placed on a $20,000 cash bond with conditions that he shall maintain absolute sobriety and may not go upon the premises of any establishment whose primary business activity involves the sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages. He shall not operate a motor vehicle without permission from the court. He shall not leave the state while the case is pending.

According to the criminal complaint, a Dodge County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a disabled vehicle call on Highway 60 near the Wild Goose Trail at 1:20 a.m. on Saturday. The deputy found the car was disabled and was abandoned. A prescription bottle with Madeiros’ name was in the front seat of the car. There were footprints in the snow leading away from the vehicle.

Deputies searched for Madeiros and followed his footprints down Wild Goose Trail. He was found about 100 yards away from the roadway and transported to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office garages.

Madeiros told the deputies that he had been ice fishing and his vehicle stopped working. He refused to perform a field sobriety test and said he was drinking after he stopped operating the vehicle. He eventually submitted to a preliminary breath test, which resulted in a blood-alcohol level of .134, well over the legal limit of .08.

Madeiros was previously found guilty of OWI in 1996, 2001, 2004 and 2012.

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 11.

The Achievers 4-H Club of Waupun donated $100 to Dr. Kelly Crowdis of the Christian Veterinary Mission based in Seattle for the Give a Kid to a Kid program on Dec. 2. The program in Haiti matches a school-aged child with a goat and a veterinary professional trains the student on how to raise and care for it. The goal of the program is to help the child earn money to go to school for a semester. Funds were raised from selling mums and pumpkins in the fall. Pictured are club members at their meeting.
