SOLON, OH (WOIO) -

A Solon man was sentenced Wednesday for his 8th drunk driving charge.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge José A. Villanueva sentenced Dean Klembus, 49, to two years in jail and also took away his drivers license for life. 

On May 6, 2012, Klembus was operating his vehicle on SR 43 when a Solon Police officer observed him weaving in and out of his lane.

The officer initiated a traffic stop and after detecting the odor of alcohol emitting from the vehicle, Klembus was removed from the vehicle and was ordered to perform sobriety tests.

After failing the sobriety tests, Klembus was placed under arrest for OVI.

A review of Klembus' driving record revealed that he had seven prior convictions for OVI, including five within the past 20 years.

On May 2, 2013, Klembus retracted his former plea of not guilty and entered a plea of no contest.

The judge subsequently found Klembus guilty of two counts of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol with prior felony OVI offense specifications and forfeiture specifications.
