SCHUYLER, Neb. -- A Schuyler man was sentenced up to eight years in prison following a DUI offense.
The Colfax County Attorney said that 31-year-old Mainor Escobar Marroquin of Schuyler was arrested on Oct. 25 by the Schuyler Police Department and the Colfax County Sheriff.
Escobar Marroquin was arrested for the offenses of fifth-offense driving under the influence of alcohol (more than .15% BAC), driving under a 15-year revocation, violation of ignition interlock device, and possession of an open alcohol container.
The County Attorney said that Escobar Marroquin was contacted as the driver who was involved in a single-vehicle accident.
Officials said his BAC test result was .25%.
On Wednesday, Nov. 8, the County said Escobar Marroquin appeared in Colfax County District Court.
After a plea agreement, he was sentenced for the fourth-offense driving under the influence of alcohol (over .15).
Escobar Marroquin was sentenced four to eight years at the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.
"Driving under the influence of alcohol presents a public safety threat in our communities," said Bruce Prenda, Colfax County Attorney. "It is particularly concerning that the behavior is recurring, and the intoxication levels are trending higher."
