FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota district judge has pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge after allegedly crashing into two parked cars in downtown Fargo.
An attorney for Southeast Judicial District Judge Cherie Clark entered a guilty plea on her behalf to a misdemeanor DUI charge in Fargo Municipal Court. Clark did not appear in court.
The judge was given a suspended 30-day jail sentence, a $650 fine, and ordered to complete a chemical dependency evaluation.
In a statement, Clark apologized to voters, family members, and her colleagues.
