A judge on Thursday sentenced former City Council aide Robin Jones, 40, to 72 to 144 hours of jail with credit for time served for a September 2012 DUI.

Jones, who formerly worked as a receptionist for City Council President Darrell Clarke, pleaded guilty to the charges on Feb. 13.

Jones was arrested last year after she was involved in an accident while driving a city-issued car.

She was charged with driving with a suspended license, DUI with a blood alcohol content over .16 and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

"I think it shows arrogance to take an illegal drug, consume an amount of alcohol over double the legal limit and take the keys to a car you do not have permission to drive when you know your license has been suspended for years," Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Kotchian saidThursday in a statement.

Jones was also sentenced to six months of probation and ordered to pay nearly $7,000 in fines and restitution.
