SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Resnick pleads guilty to DUI



Published: Tue, February 8, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



The judge's field breath test showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.216.

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio Supreme Court justice pleaded guilty Monday to drunken driving, with her lawyer saying she is an alcoholic who suffered a relapse.

The judge suspended Justice Alice Robie Resnick's license for six months and ordered her to complete a three-day alcohol rehabilitation program.

"Justice Resnick, for the better part of her adult life, has been fighting alcoholism," her lawyer Sheldon Wittenberg, said outside court after the hearing.

'Regret'

Resnick, who was also fined $600, added: "I certainly regret this happened. I will get through it."

Wittenberg said Resnick, a first-time offender, is not considering resigning.

Officers pulled over Resnick's car Jan. 31 after getting several 911 calls about an erratic driver on Interstate 75 in northwest Ohio.

Authorities said a field breath test showed her blood-alcohol level at 0.216 percent, more than twice Ohio's legal limit for drivers of 0.08 percent.
