PARKERSBURG - A June sentencing was set for a Parkersburg man whose home confinement was revoked.
Kenneth Lee Burns Jr., 35, in custody at North Central Regional Jail, was found by Wood County Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Reed to have violated two terms of his home confinement.
According to the petition to revoke his home confinement, Burns was placed on home confinement on May 23, 2008 after he pleaded guilty to third-offense driving under the influence.
During an unannounced visit to his home, officers from the home confinement program found Burns to be unsteady on his feet and his speech was slurred, officials said. After he was taken into custody, he refused to take a breathalyzer test. A test with a mobile unit administered at his home showed a blood alcohol content of .149. Those on home confinement are prohibited from drinking alcohol.
Reed set sentencing for 10 a.m. June 10.
