Former Juneau man found guilty of 5th OWI

May 4, 2019

JUNEAU -- A 34-year-old former Juneau man was found guilty Monday of his fifth offense of drunken driving after dropping his children off at school.

Adam Huebner, who is being housed in Oshkosh Correctional Institution, entered a guilty plea to a felony charge of his fifth offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a passenger under 16.

Huebner appeared before Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Brian Pfitzinger who dismissed but read into record an additional charge of bail jumping.

Huebner was sentenced to 40 months of initial incarceration and a 48 month extended sentence. Besides his driver’s license being revoked for 48 months, Huebner must have an ignition interlock on any vehicle he owns or operates for 48 months. He must undergo an AODA assessment and pay fines.

According to the criminal complaint, Huebner was dropping off his children at their schools in Watertown last March when the principal noticed Huebner was “severely impaired” from a substance other than alcohol. A Watertown police officer suspected the substance may have been a prescription medication that was not used as prescribed. He was eventually arrested.
