GA judge pleads guilty to DUI charge

MACON, Ga. (AP) - The chief magistrate for Monroe County has pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge.

Judge Jeff Davis entered his plea in Bibb County court Friday morning. He was sentenced to one day in jail, a year of probation, 40 hours of community service and an $800 fine.

Bibb County authorities arrested Davis early Saturday at a safety checkpoint in near the Monroe County line.

The next day he resigned from his job with the Forsyth County Municipal Court because he hears DUI cases there. He has not stepped down from his Monroe County job.

His attorney said Davis would make a public statement about the case later Friday.
