4½ years in prison for 11th drunken driving conviction

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — A Fond du Lac man convicted of driving drunk eleven times has been sentenced to 4½ years in prison.

Steven Johnson will also serve five years of supervision once he's released from prison and perform 75 hours of community service.

Despite 10 prior drunken driving convictions, police say Johnson had a valid drivers' license when he was arrested Jan. 1 after a crash in downtown Appleton. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/2s9gT1k ) reports a breath test showed Johnson had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit.
