Illinois’s auditor general has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence… but will be allowed to hang on to his drivers license.
61-year-old William Holland admitted that he was driving drunk when he was pulled over by state police in Springfield on February 6th.
Holland was sentenced to one year court supervision and ordered to pay more than $1500 in court costs.
But Sangamon County Associate Judge Rudy Braud rescinded the automatic one-year license suspension that Holland faced for refusing a breathalyzer test at the scene.
State’s Attorney John Milhiser says he thinks that’s appropriate, because Holland took responsibility for his actions.
