San Diego State Senator "sorry" after DUI arrest

A DUI carries so many untended consequences.  One of the biggest potential impacts is on the job of the accused.

I met a lady at court yesterday who lost her job as a teacher because her district had a “zero tolerance” rule regarding DUIs.  Some military personnel get kicked out of the service.  Other organizations rally around the person to make sure they are ok and offer support.

It is understandable that getting a San Diego DUI may show a lack of judgment.  However, drinking and driving (while NOT being impaired) is so prevalent.  

Every job is different and they will react different to every person within the organization differently.  We have to see how the senators DUI plays out.  I know he will have effective representation doing everything they can.

Your job…..license suspensions….fines….potential custody/picking up trash….ignition interlock devices is all part of a potential San Diego DUI case.

A state senator from San Diego who was arrested on suspicion of DUI after driving the wrong way down a one-way street in Sacramento apologized Friday but also said he planned to pursue his “innocence.”

State Sen. Ben Hueso is shown in a booking photo released by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department on Aug. 22, 2014.

Sen. Ben Hueso was spotted by CHP officers driving the wrong direction in Sacramento about 2:30 a.m., according to CHP.

When Hueso made a U-turn, officers pulled him over, a California Highway Patrol representativetold KTXL in Sacramento, a sister station of KTLA.

When the driver pulled over, officers saw signs that he was driving under the influence and took him into custody without incident, according to CHP.

Hueso was driving a state-owned Ford Fusion and was the only person in the car, the CHP official told KTXL.

In a statement, Hueso was remorseful and said he accepted responsibility for his actions and would take “corrective actions” to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

“I am truly and profoundly sorry for the unacceptably poor personal judgment which I demonstrated last night,” Hueso said in part. “As someone who cares deeply about the public safety, I sincerely apologize to my family, my constituents and my colleagues in the Senate for breaching the trust they’ve all placed in me.”

However, when walking out of jail shortly before noon, he told reporters he was going to “pursue” his “innocence.”

“I think I have the right to pursue my innocence,” Hueso said.

He did not answer reporters’ questions about whether he had driven drunk.

He was held on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as driving with a blood alcohol content of greater than .08 percent, the legal limit in California, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department inmate records show.

His bail was set at $1,482. He was due in court Tuesday.

The arrest occurred after a Latino Caucus dinner honoring legislators who are leaving office.

Hueso was elected to the state Senate in 2013 after serving in the Assembly since 2010. His Senate district stretches east from San Diego along the U.S.-Mexico border and includes all of Imperial County and parts of the Coachella Valley.

Before being elected to state office, Hueso served on the San Diego City Council, according to the biography page on his state website.
