The wife of Pennsylvania's budget secretary has been sentenced to house arrest for driving drunk in York County.
Georgina Zogby, 48, of 607 Moores Mountain Road in Fairview Township, appeared for sentencing on Monday morning. She pleaded guilty April 27 to first-offense DUI and driving drunk with a suspended license.
There was no sentencing agreement with prosecutors, defense attorney William Fulton has said.
Common Pleas Judge John S. Kennedy ordered Zogby to spend a total of 120 days on house arrest, but gave her credit for any time she's already served at an inpatient treatment facility, according to Fulton.
He said she will likely get 90 days of credit.
While on house arrest, Zogby must wear an electronic ankle cuff that alerts authorities if she drinks, Fulton said.
She must undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation, attend an alcohol highway safety school and pay court costs and fines, according to court records. Zogby also lost her driver's license for at least a year, Fulton said.
Zogby will be on probation until March 1, the defense attorney said.
Maintains sobriety: "She continues to maintain her sobriety and to participate in treatment and counseling," Fulton said, adding his client has been sober for eight or nine months.
Zogby was contrite when she apologized in court Monday, he said.
"I'm glad her efforts at rehabilitation were acknowledged by the court, and I'm confident she'll take advantage of the opportunity Judge Kennedy's sentence presents," Fulton said.
Deputy prosecutor Miranda Blazek could not immediately be reached for comment.
Zogby was driving her BMW on Moores Mountain Road about 2:45 p.m. Sept. 28 when she lost control of it, Fairview Township Police have said. The car ended up on its roof, blocking both lanes of the road, police said.
Zogby's blood-alcohol level was 0.117 percent, according to charging documents. In Pennsylvania, an adult is driving drunk at 0.08 percent.
Other cases: On April 19, Zogby pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Court to two counts of retail theft for stealing merchandise from T.J. Maxx and groceries from Wegmans.
In that case, she was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to perform 60 hours of community service.
Zogby is awaiting trial in Cumberland County on charges including DUI and fleeing or attempting to elude police.
State police said Zogby fled from officers about 1:15 a.m. July 10, 2011, in Monroe Township.
Trial in that case could begin in late August, Fulton said.
Zogby is the wife of state budget secretary Charles Zogby.
