Doon Man Sentenced To Five-Year Prison Term

Rock Rapids, Iowa — After several delays, a sentence has been handed down in the case of a Doon man who faced a laundry list of charges after an April 2017 pursuit through southern Lyon County.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Julian Barrientos of Doon failed to pull over for a deputy and reached speeds in excess of 90 miles-per-hour while eluding the deputy. They say he almost struck two patrol cars and failed to stop for a stop sign. He was accused of pulling into a rural driveway and failing to comply with deputies, resulting in the deputies deploying their tasers.

He was charged with eluding, a class D felony; Operating While Intoxicated, Second Offense, an Aggravated Misdemeanor; and eight other simple misdemeanor counts.

According to court records, Barrientos was sentenced to a five-year prison term. Another five-year prison term was suspended. He must pay a fine of $750, serve two years of probation and submit a DNA sample for DNA profiling. The OWI charge was dismissed.
