A Dumas man will spend the next 40 years behind bars after he is convicted of his eighth D.W.I. offense.
The 69th District Attorney's office says a jury found enough evidence Thursday to convict Vincent Friemel. Friemel's most recent DWI arrest occurred when a Dumas Police officer pulled him over while speeding through a school zone. Friemel refused to take a breath test, but a sample of his blood was taken and tested and it was nearly three times the legal limit.
