Man’s 10th drunken driving conviction nets 3 days in jail

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) — A Kansas man convicted for the 10th time for drunken driving has been sentenced to jail, but only for three days.

The Kansas City Star reports that Leavenworth County District Court Judge Gunnar Sunby on Friday sentenced 57-year-old Lloyd Henson of Kansas City, Kan. After three days in jail, he will spend the rest of his mandatory six-month sentence under house arrest.

Prosecutors had asked for the maximum 12 months in jail.

Henson was arrested in 2011 while driving in the wrong lane on Kansas 7 with an open container of alcohol. His license had been suspended since 2006 and he had no insurance.
