A St. George man who was arrested for three DUIs in less than 45 hours last summer in Cache County will be sentenced April 29.
Daniel Kropf, 42, is facing up to 5 1/2 years of incarceration for the crimes. As part of a plea deal, Kropf pleaded guilty to two DUI charges, one as a third-degree felony and the other a class B misdemeanor. The third DUI charge was dropped as part of the deal, according to court documents.
Utah law makes a driver's third DUI a felony but only after the driver's been convicted twice. Prosecutors had planned to hold three separate trials for Kropf, with one slated to start next week, but he took a plea deal on March 20.
