MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Belle Plaine police officer accused of driving under the influence in November 2012 while off-duty pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one gross misdemeanor count of DWI.
Bryan Pasek’s second DWI charge and his speeding ticket for driving 96 mph in a 55 zone on Highway 169 at Park Boulevard were dismissed. Pasek had registered a 0.17 BAC at the time.
His sentence includes two years of probation, a $700 fine, and 40 hours of community service.
Pasek resigned from the Belle Plaine Police Department on December 2012. Pasek had a prior DWI conviction from 2003, and as a result of that conviction, Pasek was suspended from the police force for three days.
He was granted a stay of imposition, so as long as Pasek follows the terms of probation, his conviction will be discharged at the end of the probationary period, although a misdemeanor conviction will remain on his criminal record.
