Reno Gazette-Journal Publisher Ted Power was sentenced to 25 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $640 fine yesterday for driving under the influence of alcohol in December, the Nevada newspaper says.
Power also was ordered to attend a Victim Impact Panel and DUI school.
His arrest late Dec. 3 was noteworthy because it came after the Gazette-Journal had published an award-winning series of stories about lax enforcement of the state's DUI laws. A week after the incident, Power apologized to readers in a column where he said: "I didn't get the message of our own stories."
Power has been the paper's publisher since May 2007.
