Ind. Courts - More on: "Prominent Floyd attorney Rick Fox charged with drunken driving"

Grace Schneider has a story this evening on the Louisville Courier Journal site that includes:

Floyd County Attorney Richard “Rick” Fox apologized to county officials during a meeting Tuesday and promised that he won’t again make the mistake of drinking and driving.

Fox gave a statement at his first meeting since taking personal leave after his arrest on drunken driving charges in Clark County early last month. * * *

Fox pleaded guilty Feb. 19 to an amended charge of misdemeanor public intoxication. He was arrested in Clarksville and jailed Feb. 7 on drunken driving charges.

Clark County Magistrate Ken Abbott sentenced Fox to six months in jail, which was suspended, and to six months probation. He also was ordered to undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, follow any treatment recommendations arising from the assessment and pay court costs and probation fees.

Two other misdemeanor charges — operating while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated with alcohol concentration equivalent to .15 or more — were dismissed under the deal, according to court records.
