Eufala, Okla. mayor gets deferred term on alcohol charges

Posted: Updated:

 EUFAULA, Okla. - A McIntosh County judge has given
Eufaula's mayor a one-year deferred sentence and fined him $900 in
connection with a drunken-driving arrest.
 Dean Smith on Wednesday pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of
driving under the influence, transporting an open container of
alcohol and failing to obey a traffic signal. District Judge Thomas
Bartheld also ordered Smith to undergo drug and alcohol
assessments.
 He still faces trial on felony counts of embezzlement by a
public officer for allegedly using his office to obtain about $200
by using a city credit card to buy gasoline and later being
reimbursed.
 Smith says it's been an unfortunate situation for him and the
city, and he has learned a lot about the justice system and
small-town politics.
