Man Pleads Not Guilty to 11th OWI Charge by Reason of Mental Defect

Mark W. Shulke of Plainfield, Wisconsin is facing his 11th OWI (operating while intoxicated) offense and is pleading not guilty by reason of mental defect. Shulke was charged with operating a motor vehicle while having a prohibited alcohol concentration, possession of THC, possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor bail jumping. These charges all stemmed from an April 19th crash and Shulke now faces up to 26 years in prison.

In April, a Portage County Sheriff’s deputy received a report of a one-vehicle crash on Highway W in the town of Almond. The person who reported the crash witnessed Shulke getting picked up by another driver and leaving the scene with a case of beer and a bottle.

Schulke will appear in court on February 18th for a status conference and Portage County Judge John Finn has ordered a doctor’s examination to determine the mental condition of Schulke. The court is expected to review the doctor’s conclusion at Schulke’s status conference. Shulke was first arrested for OWI and convicted in 1993 and his last OWI conviction occured in August 2004.
