Man Pleads Insanity for 11th OWI CaseSubmitted: 01/27/2013
Story By Associated Press

STEVENS POINT - A Plainfield man charged with his 11th OWI has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

A judge this week ordered a doctor's examination for 51-year-old Mark Schulke. The court will review the doctor's report February 18.

Portage County prosecutor Cass Cousins says he's never seen someone use an insanity plea for an OWI case before. He also says it's rare for someone to be charged with an 11th offense of the charge.

The criminal complaint says Schulke's first conviction for driving while intoxicated was in 1993. His last conviction was in 2004.
