A Bancroft man was sentenced to two terms of probation Monday morning in Dodge County District Court.
Adam P. Jensen, 34, was sentenced to two years of Intensive Supervised Probation for driving under the influence of alcohol third-offense, a Class “W” misdemeanor. In addition, Jensen was sentenced to three years of Intensive Supervised Probation for being in possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine, a Class IV felony.
Jensen was credited with three days served in Saunders County Jail, and as part of his sentencing, must spend an additional 30 days in Saunders County Jail, pay a $1,000 fine and have his driver’s license revoked for seven years.
On Sept 11, Jensen pleaded no-contest and was found guilty of driving under the influence third-offense enhanced, and also pleaded no-contest and was found guilty of being in possession of methamphetamine.
Originally, Jensen was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol fourth-offense, however, through a plea agreement the DUI charge was reduced to third offense sense he also pleaded to the felony offense of being in possession of methamphetamine, court records show.
Jensen was arrested May 28 while traveling eastbound along U.S. Highway 30 near County Road 14. He was stopped by a Dodge County Sheriff’s Office deputy for traveling 73 mph in a 60 mph zone. Court records show that when the deputy ran Jensen’s name through Dodge County dispatch, he was informed that Jensen had three prior DUI convictions.
Records show Jensen smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech. An arrest affidavit shows that Jensen failed field sobriety and admitted to drinking earlier in the night at an Omaha concert.
After failing a preliminary breath test, Jensen was arrested, and during a subsequent inventory search of his vehicle additional contraband was located, including: a glass pipe with residue which tested positive as methamphetamine, as well as cigars filled with a green leafy substance which tested positive as marijuana.
After arriving at the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, a Datamaster test revealed the defendant’s blood alcohol content to be .133.
