10/10 Two Washington County Men Appear in Court on Separate OWI Charges

Several state legislatures are lobbying for more strict laws and penalties against drivers convicted for multiple OWI violations, including making a second offense a felony. If that were to be the law, two men from Washington County would most likely be behind bars following their cases of fifth and sixth OWI offenses.In the first case, fifty year old Calvin Rady, from Newburg was stopped at about midnight on June first when a Sheriff’s Department d e p u t y noticed a car traveling East on Highway 33 in the town of T r e n t o n swerving abruptly and speeding.  When the deputy turned on his emergency lights the driver continued. The driver eventually stopped and he told the deputy he couldn’t hear the siren because his music was loud. He told the deputy he was coming from West Bend and he had three beers at a friend’s house. Rady submitted to a preliminary breath test and the result was  point 140.  His blood was drawn at the hospital a short time later and registered a high alcoholic content. Rady’s next court hearing has been scheduled for November 13th at nine forty five. The second OWI case involves fifty five year old Morris Beck from Richfield.  According to the criminal complaint, a Jackson
police officer stopped a car driven by Beck for speeding at 3 p.m. on August tenth. B e c k admitted to having two alcoholic drinks. The deputy noted that Beck’s speech was slurred. Beck agreed to submit a preliminary breath test and the results were point 251. Beck was previously convicted of OWI four times since Jan. 1, 1989.
A preliminary hearing will be held before his next court appearance on November 13.
