JUNEAU — A 40-year-old Horicon man faces a charge for a fifth offense of driving drunk after being pulled over Monday near the intersection of highways 33 and A.
Shannon C. Steindorf made his initial appearance in court on Monday and appeared before Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer. Steindorf, who also was cited with his second offense of operating a motor vehicle while revoked, was placed on a $25,000 cash bond. He was ordered to not use, possess, control any controlled substances (without a valid prescription therefore) or drug paraphernalia, nor be in the presence of anyone who does. He must maintain absolute sobriety.
According to the criminal complaint, a Dodge County deputy was near the intersection of highways 33 and A Monday at 1:45 a.m. The deputy observed Steindorf’s vehicle abruptly stop at the stop sign on Highway A before turning east on Highway 33 into the oncoming traffic lane before veering back into the eastbound lane and almost leaving the roadway.
Steindorf told the deputy that he had been visiting some friends in Beaver Dam and had one beer. According to the criminal complaint, Steindorf submitted to a preliminary breathalyzer test which resulted in a reading of a .112 blood-alcohol level.
Steindorf was convicted of OWI in 2008, 2010, and twice in 2014.
Steindorf could face up to 10 years in prison and a $27,500 fine if convicted of both offenses. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Nov. 16.
