Montana man who says he has 22 DUIs pleads guilty to another

Associated Press

BUTTE – A Montana man who says he has 22 convictions for driving under the influence has pleaded guilty to another felony DUI.

The Montana Standard reported 54-year-old Clinton Sproles entered his plea Thursday during his arraignment in Butte. District Judge Kurt Krueger made sure Sproles understood he did not yet have to enter a plea.

Public defender Walter Hennessey said Sproles had been out of prison since July 2016 for a previous felony DUI and the judge could use his previous pre-sentence report. Sproles was arrested after a Feb. 25 traffic stop.

State records indicate Sproles served a year in prison and completed a 60-day treatment program after a 2005 DUI. He served nearly seven years in prison followed by six months in a locked state treatment facility after a 2008 conviction in Gallatin County.
