By Staff | Dec 8, 2010

Judge Mark A. Karl sentenced a Moundsville man in Wetzel County Circuit Court Dec. 1 to home confinement for felony third or subsequent offense of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Norman Albert Jackson, 34, of 1004 Fifth Street, Rear No. 3, Moundsville, was sentenced to one to three years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Men with credit for two days served.

However, Jackson was granted alternative sentencing in the form of home confinement under Adult Probation Officer John Lantz. Jackson’s attorney, Jeremiah Gardner, noted to the court that his client already has a working land line telephone and is employed with Jackson’s Auto Repair.

Jackson is ordered to pay court costs in addition to a hook up fee and daily fees for home confinement. While on home confinement he will wear a leg monitor and be subject to random drug and alcohol screenings.

On Aug. 5 in Wetzel County Jackson allegedly drove a motor vehicle on Foundry Street in New Martinsville while under the influence of alcohol. Jackson was previously convicted of the offense of DUI in the Magistrate Court of Wetzel County on or about Aug. 30, 2002; in the Magistrate Court of Marshall County on or about Dec. 15, 2004; and in the Circuit Court of Marshall County on or about March 6, 2008.
