Soft on criminals Judge El Amin lets politically connected repeat drunk driver escape real jail time

Gazette: County lobbyist gets probation for drunken driving; Official has history of DUI arrests

A prominent Prince George's County government lobbyist and husband of the county school board chairwoman was sentenced today to three years of probation for his most recent drunken driving arrest.
Jacobs' driving record includes seven counts of driving under the influence, prosecutors said. He had been on probation at the time of his April arrest, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors asked the judge on Tuesday to give Jacobs an additional 10 months in jail, noting his long record and evaluations that implied he did not consider his drinking to be a problem.
