The wife of Pennsylvania's budget secretary has been sentenced to house arrest for a DUI in York County last year.

Georgina Zogby was sentenced Monday to 30 days to 120 days on house arrest. The exact amount depends on how many days' credit she receives from York County Judge John Kennedy for undergoing treatment for alcohol addiction.

Defense attorney William Fulton says the 48-year-old Zogby will have to wear an electronic ankle cuff that notifies authorities if she drinks. She will also be on probation until March 1.

Police say Zogby crashed her BMW while driving with a suspended license near her home. She pleaded guilty in April to first-offense DUI and driving drunk with a suspended license.

Zogby is the wife of state budget secretary Charles Zogby.
