Times-News: Former Judge Has License Suspended, Community Service Ordered for DUI


A former 5th District Court magistrate judge was sentenced to 20 days in jail Wednesday for a drunken driving conviction, but she'll be able to convert the jail time into 160 hours of community service.

Boise Police said former Judge Nicole Cannon had a blood-alcohol content nearly three times the legal limit when she was stopped on April 19 near the Riverside Hotel on West Chinden Boulevard. Cannon resigned from the bench in June.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that Cannon was also sentenced to one year of misdemeanor supervised probation and one year of misdemeanor unsupervised probation, in addition to 16 hours of DUI education and attendance of a victims panel.

Cannon's driver's license was also suspended for 90 days and she was ordered to pay a fine of $1,278.
