LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Louisville Water Co. president and CEO has been sentenced after entering a plea on charges of speeding and aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol.

Local media outlets report James Brammell was sentenced to six days of house arrest Thursday.

A judge also suspended Brammell’s driver’s license for 30 days and ordered him to complete an alcohol education program. Brammell was represented by attorney Rob Riley.

In 2014, Brammell was arrested after police say he was caught speeding. Authorities say his breath-alcohol test registered 0.177, or more than twice the legal limit.

Last month, Brammell entered an Alford plea on the misdemeanor charges. An Alford plea doesn’t admit guilty but concedes there’s enough evidence for a conviction.

Brammell announced his retirement from the water company Wednesday, effective Jan. 1.
