Fifth drunken-driving conviction appeal denied

SHARON -- Steven R. Pierson, of Sharon, accused of driving to a court hearing while drunk, lost his appeal in the 2nd District Court of Appeals.

Pierson's lawyers argued that statements made to a deputy who questioned him in the hallway of the courthouse should not have been admitted as evidence, which lead to a fifth drunken-driving conviction.

A Walworth County Circuit Court judge sentenced Pierson to two years in prison, following one year in prison for his fourth drunken-driving offense.

He also was given three years of extended supervision; an ignition interlock was ordered placed in his car for two years and his driver’s license was revoked for two years.
