“You are an example for everybody,” a substitute judge told Galax attorney James T. Ward Friday as he sentenced Ward to 30 days in jail.
The sentence calls for Ward to serve the time on weekends. Other penalties include a three-year OL suspension, $500 fine and VASAP classes.
Ward was stopped after an officer saw him weaving on a Carroll County road in October, according to evidence which included video from the officer’s car. He previously had his license suspended for a year after a 2009 conviction.
As The Carroll News reports, Ward immediately noted an appeal to circuit court.
