SeMo Judge Sees Man Drinking an Hour After DWI Sentencing

DECEMBER 28, 2005 - Posted at 3:14 p.m. CST

 

JACKSON, MO - A judge who caught a 27-year-old consuming alcohol an hour after sentencing him for drunk driving has ordered the man into rehabilitation.

Jacob Vandeven of Whitewater entered a guilty plea before Judge William Syler on December 5, charged with driving while intoxicated for causing an accident with injuries.

The judge went to lunch at a restaurant and bar near the courthouse in Jackson less than an hour later.  He spotted Vandeven drinking, a violation of the man's probation.

Vandeven was arrested on December 6 and is being held in the Cape Girardeau County Jail.  The judge yesterday ordered Vandeven to remain in custody until a space opens at a nearby treatment center.

The judge said Vandeven must complete a 30-day inpatient alcohol program.  Vandeven will appear back in court on January 30.  At that time, the judge could restore the probation or impose a jail sentence.
