GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The mayor of Gainesville has entered into a deferred prosecution agreement that resolves his DUI case.
The State Attorney's Office in Gainesville announced the agreement on Monday.
According to the agreement, Craig Lowe will participate in a DUI Intervention Program, which is made available to first offenders with no significant criminal or traffic history.
The Gainesville Sun reports Lowe will be required to complete all requirements for those convicted of DUI.
And he'll be monitored for 18 months and give up his driver's license for 14 days.
In a statement, Lowe said he accepts full responsibility for his March 21 DUI arrest, which he called "poor judgment."
He says he will complete the program, which also includes 50 hours of community service and an alcohol evaluation.
