MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – FOX10 News has learned that a Donald Aucoin, Jr., a Mobile County constable, was convicted of a DUI offense this week and will face one year’s probation.
On Tuesday, July 29, a judge found the elected official guilty of driving under the influence. The 47-year-old was elected as a Mobile County constable two years ago.
The Mobile County District Attorney’s Office tells FOX10 that Aucoin was arrested in March on DUI charges. Judge Robert Sherling sentenced him to six months in jail, but suspended that sentence to one year’s probation and a $600 fine. The DA’s office said Aucoin may appeal yesterday’s ruling. Our calls to his attorney to verify that have not been returned.
