FF man sentenced for felony DWIPublished 11:09am Monday, July 30, 2012
A Fergus Falls man was sentenced to at least two years and eight months in prison after he was convicted Friday for felony DWI.
Before Friday’s decision, Douglas Nelton Moe, 52, had five prior convictions for DWI or DUI-related crimes in Minnesota since 1990. In addition to his prison term, he faces $165 in fines and fees.
Moe was arrested the afternoon of March 2, after a sheriff’s deputy observed him driving irregularly, court records state. Moe was stopped at the Green Acres Trailer Court, quickly admitting that he did not have a driver’s license and that he had been drinking. He reportedly held out his hands to the deputy and said he knew he was going to jail, so the deputy should just get it over with.
