Former magistrate judge sentenced to community service for DUI

      TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A former 5th District Court magistrate judge has been sentenced to 160 hours of community service after pleading guilty to driving under the influence.

      The Times-News reports

      Nicole Cannon pleaded guilty and was sentenced Wednesday for excessive DUI. She was fined $1,278.50, ordered to attend 16 hours of alcohol/DUI education classes.

      Cannon was charged in April after she was stopped by a Boise police officer. Two tests found her blood-alcohol level to be 0.239 and 0.221, nearly three times the limit at which a person is considered legally intoxicated.

      Cannon resigned her judgeship in late June.

      The community service was ordered in lieu of 20 days in jail.
