When Michael Robinette, 56, drove while under the influence August 31 at Madison and 16th in Webb City, he was already awaiting trial on the fifth DWI. Judge Dean Dankelson sentenced him to four years on that case, as well, during the January 28 hearing.
Both drunk driving offenses occurred less than eight months after Jasper County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Hensley restored Robinette's driving privileges following the Webb City man's fourth DWI.
As part of a plea agreement, the Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney's office dismissed charges of driving while revoked, felony resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident and first degree property damage.
The probable cause statement for Robinette's sixth DWI says Robinette ran from the police after being stopped, failed to stop at a stop sign and struck a vehicle at Fountain and Lakeview, then continued to Fountain and Main where he struck another car that was stopped in traffic.
The arresting officer found that Robinette had "a strong odor of intoxicants," as well as three open vodka bottles.
Jasper County Circuit Court records show Robinette's fifth DWI came as a result of another Webb City Police Department arrest May 6. After that arrest, Robinette was behind bars on a $10,000 cash or surety and $1,000 cash bond. Judge John Nicholas reduced the bond to $5,000 cash or surety and Robinette was released June 5.
