Modesto Police Officer Sentenced after Pleading Guilty to DUI

We expect that authorities will be the first ones who will follow the law because it is their job to uphold and enforce it. If they failed to do so, they will also be punished for their wrong actions, just like ordinary citizens.

A male Modesto police officer has been sentenced to seven days in prison after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI. He admitted that he had a blood alcohol content of 0.20% while he was driving his Jeep Wrangler on Nov. 2.

In addition, he also pleaded no contest to driving with an open container in the vehicle.

Being drunk is likely the reason why he crashed his vehicle off Scenic Drive, down an embankment.

According to reports, the police officer was identified as Todd Joseph Parsons, 42. He was off-duty when the accident occurred.

It is fortunate that no one else was inside the vehicle at the time of the accident.

Parsons was sentenced to jail, but he can avoid being behind bars by participating in a work release program.
