Modesto man gets six years for DUI

After four arrests for driving under the influence, a Modesto man was sentenced to six years and eight months in state prison, Stanislaus County District Attorney Birgit Fladager announced Monday.

Curtis Elmo Williams, 40, of Modesto pleaded no contest last week to two felony counts of driving under the influence of alcohol.

On March 8, 2012, Williams was pulled over by a California Highway Patrol officer after he sped out of a Taco Bell parking lot. His blood alcohol content was 0.21 percent and a bottle of brandy was in his car.

On May 8, 2012, around 1:45 a.m., and while on bail for the prior offense, Williams was pulled over again with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent.

Williams had been convicted previously of felony driving under the influence in 2005 and again in 2008.
