A lot of people get suspended sentences on DWI but this is the first i have heard of that they did not have to have a ignition interlock put on their car for a year then have to pay a monthly service fee on the device he must have had Ross Rhodes for his attorney and paid him 5000 bucks

Will he step down as a school board member? He is supposed to be an example. They would fire a teacher for this.
