Sentencing of defendant takes place


  Roger Anton Sand, who was found guilty of three misdemeanor charges but let go on a felony DUI charge due to a hung jury during last month’s jury trial, faced sentencing earlier this month.

District Court Judge Richard Simonton ordered Sand to serve six months in the Dawson County Correctional Facility with two months suspended for driving while license was suspended or revoked. He was also ordered to pay $135, plus $875 towards the cost of his public defender within six months of the Aug. 2 sentencing date. 
This jail sentence will run concurrently to the other charges handed down, which included a 90-day incarceration for reckless driving and a 10-day sentence for operating a vehicle without liability insurance. A $135 fine was imposed for the reckless driving along with a $285 fine for lack of insurance.
An August 24 conference has been scheduled to set a date to retry the felony DUI‚Äącharge.
