  • $350 fine plus court costs
  • 24 months probation, counseling,
  • weekly Alcoholic Anonymous meetings,
  • 80 hours of Community Service Work,

  1. At lease he now has an updated photo in case he wants to run for the state legislature. He would be a shoe-in for representing Crook County.

  2. Probation, counseling, no alcohol, community service. I think that amounts to an effective way to deal with the underlying problem. Like many addicts, this is a guy who has a lot of potential if he can get help and get over his problem.
