State Rep. will not receive jail time for drunken driving
State Representative Bob Genetski will serve no jail time for his drunken driving conviction handed down last month.
The Republican from Saugatuck will have to complete 40 hours of community service. He’ll also have to pay fines and court fees.
Genetski was pulled over for driving while intoxicated in January by a Michigan State Police officer. His blood alcohol level was .08 an hour and a half after his arrest.
A jury found him guilty last month.
The maximum penalty would have been 93 days in jail. It could also come with up to 360 hours of community service, and a maximum $500 fine.
Jail time is unusual for first-time offenders.
