    Man denies

    fourth DUI

    An Orwell man charged with a fourth offense of drunken driving denied the felony charge in court Monday.

    Peter Pfenning, 50, pleaded innocent to a charge of DUI 4 which carries a potential maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and a minimum sentence of at least 192 consecutive hours of jail time.

    Pfenning, who appeared in court on a citation, remains free on court-ordered conditions that include he not consume or possess alcohol and that he report daily to the Rutland County Sheriff’s Department for alcohol testing.

    Pfenning was arrested earlier this month after Vermont State Police said he was seen driving in the wrong lane on Route 7 in Clarendon. Police said Pfenning’s blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.188 percent. The legal limit to operate a motor vehicle in Vermont is 0.08 percent.
