December 18, 2014 (San Diego) – State Senator Ben Hueso has accepted a plea deal from prosecutors in Sacramento County. Hueso, a Democratic legislator from San Diego, was originally charged with drunk driving but pled guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving involving alcohol.
His blood alcohol level of .08 was just over the legal limit. Hueso was arrested in August after driving the wrong way on a one-way street in Sacramento following a party with Latino Caucus members at the state Capitol.
He received three years probation and must pay a $1,100 fine, as well as complete a reckless driving program, the Sacramento Bee reports.
