A Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals judge pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in a Knox County court on Monday.
Judge Jerry Lynn Smith was arrested while driving on Cumberland Avenue in April. The Knoxville Police Officer pulled him over because the trunk was open, but then noticed a strong smell of alcohol. The officer said the judge had slurred speech, failed field sobriety tests, and refused a blood test.
Smith was sentenced to 48 hours behind bars and 11 months & 29 days of unsupervised probation. He must also pay a $350 fine, court costs, attend a DUI school and do litter pickup.
