A Platte County judge has ordered a drunken-driving defendant to report to jail on New Year's Eve, in part to keep the man away from alcohol and a vehicle on the holiday.

Twenty-nine-year-old Chasin Renteria of Duncan, Nebraska was sentenced Thursday by Judge Frank Skorupa. Renteria had pleaded no contest to charges of speeding and aggravated drunken driving. He'd been arrested after being pulled over on October 9th.

Renteria wanted to begin his two-day jail sentence on January 4th, but the judge said no. Skorupa said to Renteria, "I don't want you out on the streets on New Year's Eve." The judge ordered Renteria to report to jail at 4 p.m. Monday.

Renteria was also sentenced to six months of probation.
