A Lancaster County Board member and legislative candidate was sentenced Wednesday to seven days in jail for drunken driving.
Thirty-two-year-old Brent Smoyer will be allowed to serve the time under house arrest, which begins July 2nd.
Smoyer was stopped on April 11th by University of Nebraska-Lincoln police. A sobriety test showed his blood-alcohol content was above the legal limit to drive. He later pleaded no contest in county court. Smoyer will lose his driver's license for six months and pay $500 as part of his sentence.
Smoyer, a Republican, will face Democrat Matt Hansen this fall to represent northeast Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature.
