Caldwell man gets 4th DUI conviction

A Caldwell County man has been sentenced to at least a year in prison after his fourth DUI conviction in the past five years, according to the district attorney’s office.

Jerry Ray Boles, 43, of Lenoir, was convicted this week in Caldwell County Superior Court by a jury that deliberated about 30 minutes. He was sentenced by Judge Timothy Kincaid to between 12 and 15 months in prison.

He had been charged with habitual DUI, a felony, along with misdemeanor counts of driving while license revoked and failure to reduce speed. The alleged DUI incident took place in September 2011 in Lenoir, prosecutors say.

Boles’ previous DUI convictions were in September 2008 and April 2010 in Caldwell County and November 2010 in Watauga County.
