Charles Barkley Convicted of DUI

Former NBA great Charles Barkley was sentenced to 10 days in jail after pleading guilty to driving drunk in Scottsdale, Ariz., last New Year's Eve.

Barkley will have five days off the sentence suspended upon his completion of a court-approved alcohol program, officials said. He also was ordered to attend traffic school and pay $2,000 in fines.

The 46-year-old Hall of Fame player is expected to begin serving his sentence on March 21, according to court records.

Barkley was arrested on December 31 in Scottsdale with a blood alcohol content of 0.149, nearly double the amount allowed under Arizona law.

As under California law, in Arizona it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content higher than .08 %. Penalties for DUI are constantly increasing, if you or someone you know has been charged with driving under the influence contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.
