Hague gets 6 months probation for DUI

Hague gets 6 months probation for DUI, Seattle Times, March 14, 2008:

Sentenced to six months' probation for a driving-under-the-influence charge brought against her last summer, Metropolitan King County Councilmember Jane Hague said she intends to become "the poster child" of efforts to reduce the pain and damage done by drunken driving.

"You haven't heard the last from me," she said. "I definitely feel as a public official I should be held to a higher standard."
If Councilmember Hague fulfills the terms of her probation, it is expected that the charge will be reduced to reckless driving -- a common result in DUI cases.
