Three months in jail tacked on to current six month sentence.
The Cassgram reports 30-year-old Chris Halferty of Eagle will serve the Cass County time after he completes the 180-day term in Douglas County.
Halferty was arrested in Elmwood on November 26th of last year. The chemical test of his blood alcohol content was .156.
He was then arrested on another DUI charge in Douglas County a month later. He already received the six month sentence on that charge and was fined $1,000.
Halferty had two previous DUIs on his record before the November incident. Cass County prosecutors agreed to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor in return for his guilty plea.
This week, Cass County District Court Judge Randall Rehmeier said the Cass County case is separate from the Douglas County case so it should be treated separately.
Halferty will also pay a $1,000 fine in Cass County as well as all court costs. His license is suspended for seven years but Rehmeier said Halferty will be eligible to drive with an interlock ignition device 45 days after his release from jail.
