SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - The superintendent in charge of schools on the California side of south Lake Tahoe is apologizing for his recent conviction of driving under the influence.

El Dorado County Superintendent Jeremy Meyers was booked into the county jail in Placerville over the weekend after pleading no contest to charges stemming from the June 9 incident.

David Stevenson of the district attorney’s office told Lake Tahoe News he was sentenced to five days in jail.

Meyers said in a statement issued through his attorney that he has accepted responsibility and is personally dealing with his error in judgment.

Meyers was first appointed by the school board to fill the vacant position in 2013. He was re-elected last year when he ran unopposed for a four-year term.
