Crapo Sentenced for Drunk Driving

Sen. Michael Crapo (R-ID) pleaded guilty to drunk driving following his arrest last month and issued a sweeping apology after a judge accepted his plea, the Washington Post reports.

Crapo "was sentenced to 180 days in jail, all of which was suspended. His license was suspended for a year, but he's eligible for a restricted license. Crapo must also pay a $250 fine and complete an alcohol program over the next year."

Crapo, a Mormon, said that he had been using alcohol for several months to "relieve stress," a decision that was "at odds with who I am" and against Mormon practices.
