Appeals court reinstates drunken driving conviction against northwest Wisconsin man
A state appeals court has reinstated a drunken driving conviction against a northwest Wisconsin man who convinced a judge to dismiss it so he could work in Canada.
Shawn Bowman, 33, of Weyerhaeuser worked on a Great Lakes cargo ship when he asked former Barron County Circuit Judge Ed Brunner to change his conviction last year.
He either wanted it thrown out or changed to another offense so he could get into Canada under its tough new border security rules.
