HILLSBORO, Ore.- On April 22, 2021, Steven Wayne Jones pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants. Judge Oscar Garcia sentenced the defendant to 50 months in prison. Deputy District Attorney David Pitcher prosecuted the case against Mr. Jones.

This is the defendant’s 10th DUII conviction since 1998. Mr. Jones was most recently convicted of DUII in Multnomah County, Oregon in 2017 and was still undergoing court-ordered supervision when he was arrested for the most recent offense.

Mr. Jones, whose driver’s license has been revoked for life, was found asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle outside a convenience store in December of 2020. Deputies from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene. They found an empty beer can in his cupholder along with a bottle containing liquor in the backseat. The defendant admitted to consuming alcohol earlier that day. Deputies conducted a breath test in which the defendant was found to have a blood alcohol content of .19.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the work of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in removing this dangerous driver from our roadways.

In addition to his prison sentence, Judge Garcia also ordered the defendant to undergo 10 months of post-prison supervision and to participate in an alcohol treatment program.
