A seven-time convicted drunken driver was sentenced to five years in prison Friday.
John C. Baker had a blood alcohol level of 0.252 when he was pulled over in Waupun Feb. 11, 2011, about three weeks after his release from prison for his sixth drunken driving conviction, according to a news release from Fond du Lac County District Attorney Daniel Kaminsky.
A level of 0.08 is legal proof of intoxication for motorists in Wisconsin.
According to the release, Baker is serving another 17 months in prison after being revoked from extended supervision for his sixth offense drunken driving conviction in 2007. His fifth offense occurred in 2003.
After serving a year in jail he was also revoked from probation in that case, according to the release.
