An Austin man facing seven different felony charges in Mower County District Court, including for domestic assault, violating a no-contact order, DWI and drug possession stemming from incidents that occurred in October of 2021, and in March and May of 2022 has been sentenced to prison time.

51-year old Jerry Arthur Hoy was convicted and sentenced Tuesday to 27 months in prison for a felony charge of violating a no-contact order within 10 years of the first of two or more convictions or possession of a dangerous weapon stemming from an incident that took place in Austin on May 17th.  Hoy was given credit for 81 days already served, and he first pleaded guilty to the charge on September 9th after initially pleading not guilty on July 25th.  Felony charges for domestic assault and domestic assault by strangulation, plus a gross misdemeanor charge for interfering with an emergency call stemming from the incident were all dismissed with Hoy’s guilty plea.

Hoy was also convicted and sentenced Tuesday to 54 months in prison for a felony charge of 1st degree DWI, any amount of Schedule I or II drugs in the body after authorities reported that he failed several field sobriety tests after a traffic stop on October 24th, 2021.  A search of Hoy’s vehicle turned up .265 grams of methamphetamine, and a mixture of methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl weighing .130 grams.  Hoy was given credit for 128 days already served, and Judge Kevin Siefken also determined that Hoy will be subject to five years of conditional release after confinement.  Hoy first pleaded guilty to the charge on September 9th after initially pleading not guilty on July 25th, and two felony 5th degree drug possession charges stemming from the incident were both dismissed with Hoy’s guilty plea.

Hoy was also convicted and sentenced Tuesday to 75 months in prison for a felony charge of 2nd degree drugs, sale of 10 grams or more of a narcotic other than heroin within a 90-day period after the Mower County Sheriff’s Office reported that Hoy sold 27.81 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant on March 10th of this year.  Hoy was given credit for 127 days already served, and he first pleaded guilty to the charge after initially pleading not guilty on August 8th.

Judge Siefken determined that Hoy will be allowed to serve the three prison sentences concurrently.
