MASON CITY – A Mason City woman will spend the next 3 weeks behind bars after her second drunk driving conviction.

Mason City police stopped 52-year-old Jean Kae Graupman on the evening of September 10, 2015 as she blew through a stop sign. She was arrested and charged with second offense operating while under the influence, driving under suspension, no proof of insurance and failure to obey a stop sign.

Graupman entered a guilty plea to second offense operating while intoxicated on December 28. She was sentenced on January 19 to 365 days in jail with all but 21 days suspended. She was also ordered to pay $2,756.25 in fines and court costs, serve 2 years of probation and loss of license.  She was placed on a $50.00 per month payment plan.

Graupman was arrested by Rockwell police back in 2006 for drunk driving. In addition to other penalties, she was ordered to pay $2,328.13 in fines and court fees. Records show she has failed to make a single payment on that balance.

    With a face like that, I can see why she wants to be drunk.

    How do these people get away with not paying any of their fines? If they get picked up and have not paid anything toward their fines from a previous conviction why do they just slap them on the wrist, fine them more and let them go? She should have to serve the entire 365 day sentence since she has failed to make a single payment on the fines she already owes. They need keep her in jail and make her work it off working for the county. She probably will never pay these fines. I just don’t get it.
