OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma County official won’t be spending any time behind bars after entering a no contest plea to drunken driving.
Oklahoma County Clerk Carolynn Caudill was fined and given six months probation on charges of driving under the influence and striking a parked car.
Last September, Caudill was found in a parked car that was heavily damaged on the passenger’s side on a lawn.
Officers reported a strong smell of alcohol and noted that the 67-year-old had bloodshot eyes.
On Wednesday, Caudill entered an “Alford plea,” which is similar to a no contest plea.
She was ordered to pay more than $1,800 in fines, plus court costs.
