ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Dakota County judge is retiring two months after pleading guilty to drunken driving.
The Minnesota Commission on Judicial Selection announced Judge Michael Sovis' retirement Monday.
Sovis declared his intention to seek a medical retirement when he pleaded guilty in May to third-degree driving under the influence.
The judge was arrested Christmas Eve when he hit several parked cars in St. Paul. Court documents say his blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit for driving.
His attorney, David Ayers, says Sovis has been off the job since his arrest and completed 33 days of treatment.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/17c8l3Z ) reports Sovis had been on the bench since 1988. The Judicial Selection Commission is seeking applicants to fill the vacancy.
