He received a concurrent sentence of 36 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud for violating probation from a 2014 felony first-degree DWI-alcohol concentration 0.08 within two hours conviction.

Charges of gross misdemeanor driving restrictions-alcohol/controlled substance violation and gross misdemeanor driving after cancellation of his license-inimical to public safety were dismissed at the sentencing.

Judge Jeffrey Kritzer issued the sentences.

Court documents state Krebsbach was arrested on the night of Dec. 6, 2018, after a state trooper on patrol noticed a 1997 Cadillac DeVille near the intersection of 11th Street and First Avenue Northwest that appeared to have an illegal window tint. The trooper made contact with the driver, Krebsbach, and noticed that his pupils were dilated and did not constrict when light was introduced.

Believing Krebsbach to be under the influence of a controlled substance, the trooper had him perform four field sobriety tests, two of which he failed.

While searching the Cadillac, the trooper found a green plastic tube that contained white residue, which later tested positive for methamphetamine.

At the Mower County Jail, the trooper obtained a search warrant and took a blood sample from Krebsbach. On Dec. 31, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension sent back the results, which tested positive for the presence of amphetamine and methamphetamine.

A review of Kresbach’s criminal record shows prior convictions for DWI and fleeing a peace officer by a means other than a motor vehicle.
