Fox Lake man gets jail for 5th drunken driving offense

April 3, 2019

JUNEAU – A 62-year-old Fox Lake man was found guilty Tuesday of his fifth offense of drunken driving.

Dean C. Cook entered a no contest plea and was found guilty by Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer. Bauer withheld sentencing and placed him on probation for 36 months. He must serve 180 days in jail. He must pay fines and court costs. He must undergo an AODA assessment and maintain absolute sobriety. He may not go on the premises of businesses whose primary business is selling alcohol. He may not operate a motor vehicle without a driver’s license. His driver’s license will be revoked for 36 months, and he must have an ignition interlock on any vehicle he owns or operates for 36 months.

According to the criminal complaint, a car Cook was driving was traveling 56 mph in a 40 mph zone on Highway 33 at Plaza Drive in the town of Beaver Dam Aug. 19 at 12:15 a.m. The vehicle was stopped by police in the 800 block of Park Avenue in Beaver Dam. Cook appeared to be intoxicated to the deputy and was wearing the wristband the Dodge County Fair requires in order to sell alcohol on fair grounds. Cook allegedly told the deputy that he had three beers throughout the night.

Cook had a blood alcohol concentration of .115. He was previously convicted of OWI in 1990, 1991, 1994 and 2009.
