Prosecutor loses drivers license in OWI case

RACINE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Racine County's chief prosecutor will lose his driver's license for a year, after he agreed to plead guilty to driving drunk last weekend.

Racine Police said District Attorney Rich Chiapete struck a traffic signal and a tree last Friday night, then went to his home which was nearby. When police knocked on his door, he said he had been sleeping. Yesterday, his attorney said Chiapete wanted to take responsibility for his actions. So he agreed to plead guilty to municipal charges of O-W-I and hit-and-run, plus a new count of obstructing an officer. Chiapete agreed to pay just over $1,200 by mid-June, and have his driver's license revoked for a year.

When it's restored, the D-A can only drive vehicles with interlock sobriety tubes for the next year. A municipal judge must still approve the plea agreement.
