California Prison Director Charged with Drunk Driving in Sacramento

The under-secretary in charge of adult and juvenile prisons and parolees in California has been charged with driving under the influence. Scott Kernan, 47, was driving a state vehicle when he was stopped by the California Highway Patrol for speeding in rural Sacramento County. His blood alcohol content reportedly was above the legal limit of .08%.

Kernan was appointed to the California Corrections department in November 2008. A spokesperson with the department said that Kernan was on personal leave pending discipline. He could be temporarily suspended or lose his job. Kernan has issued no comment, except to express remorse to his superiors for his actions.

Kernan is scheduled to be arraigned on charges of California DUI on July 16.
