A former assistant attorney general was sentenced to 24 hours in jail Tuesday for driving while intoxicated three days after he was hired to prosecute drunk driving cases.

Charles Reed Davis, 26, pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge. Kanawha County Magistrate Carol Fouty fined him $100, plus $45 in court costs and jail fees, and sentenced him to 24 hours in the county jail.

“I know a lot of people think he should have gotten more time, but I didn’t think so,” Fouty said. “I gave him the normal sentence for someone who pleads guilty.”
