Reno Man Found Guilty in DUI Trial, Faces Up to 15 Years in Prison

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County District Attorney's Office says a Reno man faces up to 15 years in prison after he was found guilty in a recent DUI trial. 

Prosecutors say 36-year-old Jessie Edward Lovell was found guilty last Friday of one count of driving under the influence of alcohol. 

Sparks Police arrested Lovell after a traffic stop last February. Prosecutors say his blood alcohol content was .231, nearly three times the legal limit.

Authorities say Lovell was booked on a felony DUI charge based on the fact that he had a prior conviction for a separate felony DUI in 2013 for which he served time in prison. 

Sentencing is set for July 26, 2018.
