Rochester man sent back to jail for latest drunk driving conviction
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – A Rochester man who was sentenced to 5 ½ years in prison for DUI several years ago has received the same sentence for his latest conviction.
Last week, Justen Heintzman, 42, was sentenced.
He was drunk when he caused a high-speed accident in June 2020 in Rochester. The criminal complaint says he was driving at high speed on Highway 52 when he overturned a large van near the civic center. Dr. Heintzman fled on foot, but police located him and took him into custody.
A blood test showed that his blood/alcohol concentration was close to 0.17. He pleaded guilty to a DUI felony in January.

Police officers on foot patrol heard the noise and attempted to arrest Heintzman and one of them was injured after being hit by his car.
