Riverton superintendent pleads not guilty to DUI

RIVERTON — Riverton superintendent of schools Dr. JoAnne Andre-Flanagan has entered a plea of “not guilty” via her attorney, according to the Riverton Municipal Court.

Court staff also stated that the Fremont County School District 25 leader’s May 5 arraignment has been delayed, replaced by a scheduling conference, which has not yet been set.

Flanagan was taken into custody briefly on Saturday, April 22, after registering a .14 blood-alcohol content while driving in the 100 block of South Fifth Street West in Riverton at about 11:45 p.m. She was cited by the Riverton Police Department for DUI.

In Wyoming, more severe consequences can be incurred by registering a .15 or higher BAC amid a DUI citation. Penalties for driving with a .08 to .14 BAC range from a deferred prosecution with some probationary terms, to six months in jail and $750 in fines.
