Seattle superintendent candidate talks about previous DUI arrest

Posted by Unknown | Mar 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

There are three finalists left for the position of the Seattle school superintendent. One of the three candidates, Sandra Husk, has revealed that 12 years ago she was arrested for driving under the influence.

This conviction, according to the Seattle School Board President, will not have any bearing on the final decision for the superintendent position. Husk has acknowledged the arrest, and every applicable individual for the position underwent extensive background checks before being considered.

Husk was arrested in Colorado in 2000, and initially charged with driving under the influence and speeding. She ended up agreeing to a plea bargain, and pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of driving while impaired. She completed an alcohol-awareness program, as well as 24 community service hours.
