Attorney Jailed for New York DWI

A former attorney from the Buffalo New York area, who once had plans of running for a judicial office, has been sentenced to jail. Anne Adams was arrested for driving while intoxicated in NY last September. She attempted to avoid prosecution by asking a sitting judge to declare her not intoxicated and she sought a falsified result for blood alcohol content.

Adams, 46, was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years probation, fined $395, ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and required to write a letter of apology to the arresting officer in the NY DWI case. She also lost her law license and was dismissed from her position at the University of Buffalo Law School.

The State Supreme Court justice who handled the case called the episode “embarrassing and shameful.”
