District Court

Kandiyohi County

* Jane Leslie Docken, 56, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to 42 months in prison, which was stayed, a five-year conditional release period, seven years of probation and a $1,000 fine on a felony charge of driving while impaired.

Docken was also sentenced to 330 days in jail, of which 120 days will be served over the next seven months and 210 days can be deferred if she complies with conditions of probation.

She was also ordered to follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment, submit to electronic alcohol monitoring and random testing, and ordered not use or possess alcohol or drugs.

As part of a plea agreement, another felony charge was dismissed, along with a gross misdemeanor charge of driving after cancellation – inimical to public safety and a misdemeanor count of open bottle.

The charges were filed after Jan. 28, when a Kandiyohi County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched around 9 p.m. to a location six miles south of Willmar along U.S. Highway 71 regarding a vehicle that had been located there. The vehicle and driver had been the subject of an earlier traffic complaint about an intoxicated driver.

The driver was identified as Docken and first responders determined that she was not injured but was intoxicated. The deputy noted that she had an extreme odor of alcohol and extremely bloodshot eyes and was in and out of consciousness, so much so that the deputy could not hold a conversation with her. An open bottle of rum was located in the back seat of her vehicle.

The deputy did not subject Docken to field sobriety tests because he did not want her to risk injury. She was placed in a squad car and taken to Rice Memorial Hospital to be examined.

At the hospital, she agreed to give a blood sample, but then got irritated with hospital staff and refused to cooperate and give the blood. She remained at the hospital as she was receiving intravenous fluids.

Around 2:20 a.m. the next morning, she was transported to the county jail and apologized to the deputy, noting that she had no recollection of driving, but admitting that she knew she was intoxicated and should not have been driving.

Docken had three prior convictions for driving while impaired, including convictions in December 2007, June 2010 and September 2012.

* Johnathan David Johnson, 23, of Inver Grove Heights, made his first appearance Tuesday on a felony charge of violating the registration requirements for a predatory offender.

Unconditional bail was set at $75,000. His next appearance is June 30.

According to the complaint, Willmar police attempted to make contact with Johnson on April 28 because he is required to register as a predatory offender after a second-degree criminal sexual conduct conviction in 2010.

At the address Johnson had filed with police, a woman told the officer that Johnson had moved out a month prior and that a relative had picked him up at the house. The relative told police that she had dropped Johnson off in Columbia Heights and had not heard from him since.

He has a prior conviction for failing to register as a predatory offender in 2012.
