MASON CITY – A Plymouth man caught last fall for drunk driving for the third time in his driving career is now serving time in the Cerro Gordo County Jail after accepting a plea deal Monday.
Kory John Ferden, age 26, is serving a 30 day jail sentence after pleading guilty to third offense operating while intoxicated. Judge Karen Salic threw out a five year prison term but imposed a $3,125 fine. Ferden must serve 40 hours of community service, spend five years on probation and serve 180 days in a residential facility, most likely Beje Clark. Ferden owes $4,408.75 in court fees, fines and costs.
The plea deal also involved a probation violation after a plea deal Ferden took in 2012 for multiple charges of possession of a controlled substance. Judge Salic threw out a five year prison sentence involved with that violation, as well.
