Karl Biemel, an Arapahoe County Sheriff’s deputy, pleaded guilty to DUI and has been sentenced to 15 days in jail and two years supervised probation.
Biemel, 49, pleaded guilty Feb. 9 to one count of driving under the influence with one prior DUI. In addition to jail and probation, he will perform 48 hours of community service.
On Sept. 27, 2017, a co-worker reported to her supervisor that she believed Biemel was intoxicated and that she could smell alcohol on his breath.
Biemel had driven to work and started his assignment at 7:30 a.m. in court services.
Biemel cooperated with investigators and admitted to drinking the night before. A breath test showed his blood alcohol level at .046 at least five hours after his shift began.
