Thirty-year-old Sean Avery Stanton was set to plead guilty yesterday to second offense DUI and three counts of seriously injuring someone while driving drunk.

At a deputy's request the judge ordered Stanton to take a breath test. It came back three times the legal limit.

He was put in jail and is set to make another court appearance Thursday morning.
