Cheyenne man faces 4–6 years for sixth DUI offense


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — On Jan. 18, Judge Catherine R. Rogers handed down a four- to six-year prison sentence to Justin Alan Hasenauer, a repeat DUI offender, rejecting a plea for community supervision.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant Adam Powell reported that on April 27, 2023, he responded to a multi-vehicle crash involving Hasenauer, who displayed clear signs of intoxication. Breath tests revealed a blood alcohol content of over twice the legal limit, according to a police affidavit.

Hasenauer’s criminal record, with multiple DUI charges both in Wyoming and Arkansas, influenced the court’s decision. He had nonextradition warrants in Arkansas and several convictions in Cheyenne.

Despite the plea agreement suggesting supervised probation and DUI court for rehabilitation, Judge Rogers decided on a prison sentence, underscoring the severity of Hasenauer’s repeat offenses.
