Carlton Fisk, a former catcher for the White Sox, has officially pled guilty to a DUI today.
If you recall, Fisk was arrested for a DUI in New Lenox after police found the former athlete driving in the middle of a field. Fisk was under the influence of both alcohol and prescription drugs.
Fisk has been sentenced to 1 year of court supervision as well as mandatory fines. This is his first DUI. As part of his court supervision, Fisk will have to submit to drug and alcohol evaluations, seek treatment and attend a drunk driving victim impact panel. At this point, the Chicago Tribune did not report the exact type of license suspension Fisk will have to face, although Fisk does have a Florida driver’s license.
Even if you get a DUI on a vacation and/ or outside your home state, you can still find yourself with a suspended driver’s license in your state of residence. This is why it is necessary to call an experienced attorney to help you sort out these issues and to fight your DUI charges.
