Montgomery man gets 30 year jail time for multiple DWI offenses

A man from Montgomery County who has at least eight previous DWI charges was given a 30 year prison sentence for his ninth DWI offense on Monday, August 19. 53-year-old Kevin Michael Koch pleaded guilty just before the start of a jury trial at the Conroe 221st State District Court on the 19.

According to Assistant District Attorney Vince Santini, Koch aka Carl Wendell Hall asked the court for a probation ruling but was denied because of his past DWI record, which dates back to the 1980s.

Santini said they have put in a lot of time and effort to piece together all of Koch’s DWI arrest and conviction records, which was gathered mostly by Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office police investigator Heather Cash.

Koch, who has been in the Montgomery County Jail since Thursday, will be transferred to prison where he will spend at least 8 years before becoming eligible for parole.
