Waukesha – Former Arrowhead High School Superintendent David Lodes was sentenced this afternoon to 130 days in jail for his second drunken driving offense.
Lodes, 58, of N19 W28905 Golf Ridge North, Town of Delafield, was ordered by Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Robert Mawdsley to 60 days in the work-release jail and 70 days of day reporting; revoked his driver’s license for 18 months and has to pay $916 in fines and court costs.
Lodes was arrested Nov. 18 in the City of Delafield. He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.308, almost four times above the legal limit of 0.08, when he was arrested for allegedly drunken driving, according to court records.
Lodes told Mawdsley he was on his way to an Alcohol Anonymous meeting but he had “a lot of bottled up issues” and bought a bottle of alcohol and drank it in his car and then was stopped by police on his way home.
Mawdsley told Lodes he was fortunate a police officer stopped him because “you could have killed someone.”
Lodes is to begin his sentence today.
Lodes retired at the end of June 2007 after serving 14 years as AHS superintendent and was named superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in October 2007. He resigned that post in March.
