A Delaware prosecutor has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence after crash in his state-owned car in Bear.

Donald Roberts was sentenced Wednesday for the first-offense DUI with one-year probation. He also must attend a treatment program and pay court costs, a $230 fine and $500 in restitution to the state.

Court documents state Donald Roberts pleaded guilty to driving with a blood-alcohol content of 0.33.

Roberts was placed on "paid accrued leave" until June 30, when he retires, after the DUI charges were followed by another run-in with the law. Charges were dropped in the second incident, which involved a woman alleging Roberts tried to break into her Maryland home.
