WORTHINGTON - Sergio Granados-Cordova, 35, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Nobles County District Court to one count of driving while intoxicated in the first degree.

 

A Worthington Police Department officer pulled Granados-Cordova over on Sept. 13 at about 1:50 a.m. The police report states Granados-Cordova made a right turn from Nobles Street onto Orchard Road without signaling, then entered into an oncoming traffic lane. A breath test found he had a blood alcohol concentration of .19.

 

With the guilty plea, Granados-Cordova’s second felony DWI charge will be dropped, as well as charges of open bottle possession and driving with a cancelled driver’s license.

Granados-Cordova faces 180 days in jail, a $1000 fine and seven years probation during which he will be randomly tested, plus community service. He cannot enter any businesses that has a primary function of serving alcohol, and must undergo a chemical use evaluation and impaired driving impact panel.

 

The deal will be void if Granados-Cordova is not accepted into drug court.
