A Lyle man facing a felony charge for fleeing a peace officer and a gross misdemeanor DWI charge stemming from an incident with law enforcement on January 30th, 2020 has been sentenced to supervised probation and jail time in Mower County District Court.
43-year old Jacob Harm Wilde was convicted and sentenced Friday to three years of supervised probation for a felony charge of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. A 13-month prison sentence was stayed for three years if Wilde adheres to the conditions of his probation, and he was also convicted and sentenced to a year in jail and two years of supervised probation for a gross misdemeanor charge of DWI, operating a motor vehicle with the body containing any amount of Schedule I or II drugs, not marijuana. Judge Jeffery Kritzer stayed 359 days of the jail time for two years if Wilde complies with the terms of his probation, and he was given credit for six days already served. Wilde must also undergo 24 days of home monitoring as part of his sentencing.
Wilde first pleaded guilty to the charges on July 12th, and a misdemeanor charge for driving after revocation in the case was dismissed with Wilde’s guilty pleas.
