Drunk driver going to prison after sixth DWI conviction


KINGSTON – A man with five previous felony DWI convictions has pled guilty to his sixth felony DWI.  He is expected to be sentenced to two and one-third to seven years in prison when he is sentenced in Ulster County Court in October.

Carl Hill, age 54, of Kingston, pled guilty to felony DWI in Ulster County Court on July 6, based on his two prior convictions in the past ten years.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on December 23, 2021, when Hill was arrested by the New York State Police.  Mr. Hill failed his field sobriety tests and refused to submit to a chemical test after being arrested.

Hill, according to Ulster County District Attorney David Clegg has a criminal history of five felony convictions for driving while intoxicated offenses, and at the time of arrest, he was under supervision by the Dutchess County Probation Department.

This was Hill’s ninth arrest for DWI.  Sentencing is scheduled for October 6, 2022.
