CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) - The 62-year-old owner of a local financial services firm faces a year in the St. Louis County Jail as a repeat offender with several drunk driving convictions.

Gary Dean Siegfried, president of Siegfried Financial, was serving a two-year probation under a suspended execution of sentence order. Court records show he is now facing a hearing on his status.

Siegfried was convicted of drunk driving in Madison County, Illinois and in St. Louis County. This spring, he refused to take a chemical test and that prompted the probation proceedings.

Missouri driving records show his license has been revoked repeatedly by the Department of Revenue. On several occasions it was designated as an "administrative alcohol suspension."

On April 25, Siegfried was arrested for driving on a revoked license and as a repeat offender. The police officer who made the arrest said in a probable cause statement the defendant "had an odor of an alcoholic beverage and slurred speech."

Siegfried did not respond to Fox 2’s phone call requesting a comment Friday. His attorney, Scott Rosenblum, said in a statement, "Every case has to be evaluated on its own merits. Various circumstances impact these cases.”
