A Morrison man with a history of assault and impaired driving charges has been ordered to serve 600 days in jail for more driving and assault charges.

Eric Dwayne Wilson, 39, was given the sentence by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley. His jail time comes for assault, fourth-offense DUI, evading arrest, reckless endangerment with a motor vehicle, and driving on a revoked license.

According to court records, Wilson had already been convicted for driving under the influence three times in 1999, 2007 and 2016.

He was hit with charges of driving on a revoked license and evading arrest for an incident in April 2017 when he was spotted behind the wheel by a deputy who had knowledge his license was not valid. When the deputy tried to initiate a traffic stop, Wilson reportedly drove .4 miles to his home.

In addition to his jail time, Wilson was fined $3,000 and had his driver’s license revoked for eight years.
