LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lancaster County Board member and legislative candidate has been sentenced to seven days in jail for drunken driving.
Brent Smoyer received the sentence Wednesday. The 32-year-old will be allowed to serve the time under house arrest, which begins July 2.
Smoyer was driving when he was stopped on April 11 by University of Nebraska-Lincoln police. A sobriety test showed his blood alcohol content was above the legal limit to drive. He later pleaded no contest in county court.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/UNqGpD ) Smoyer will lose his driver’s license for six months and pay $500 as part of his sentence.
Smoyer, a Republican, will face Democrat Matt Hansen this fall to represent northeast Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature.
