WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- A Wausau woman faces additional charges for being drunk in court. 25-year-old Storie Kunz appeared Tuesday to enter into a plea deal on charges of marijuana possession, negligent use of a weapon, battery, and prostitution. Kunz told Judge Jill Falstad during the hearing she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at that time. She was. That was discovered when she checked in with the probation office an hour later.
Kunz’s probation officer detected the smell of intoxicants, and blew a point-113 breathalyzer test. She was then marched back to the judge for a special hearing, where Falstad ordered Kunz held on a $1,000 bond with the first $250 in cash for bail jumping.
Kunz admitted having two beers and two shots, and that she started drinking the night before the hearing.
Lying to the judge can be costly. Until officials discovered she was drunk, the original plea agreement called for a review of her charges after probation so she could have her record expunged. That deal is gone, now.
