Jeff Garcia was sentenced Monday to seven days in a work-release program after pleading guilty to drunken driving.The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback also will be fined $1,491 and have to attend and educational program for six months. He only will be allowed to drive to and from work.
 

Steve Manchester, the attorney for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, entered a plea of guilty for driving under the influence with a special enhancement because his blood alcohol level was so high.Garcia did not appear in court.Garcia was arrested on Jan. 14 in downtown San Jose by a San Jose State University police officer. After being pulled over, he allegedly admitted to the officer that he was feeling the affects of alcohol.According to police reports, Garcia's blood alcohol level registered .219 after a blood test. The legal limit in California is .08.Garcia, 33, was traveling with 18-year-old Meredith Freeman, who sat in the front passenger seat of the Lincoln Navigator he was driving.Two other passengers, Eddie Albert Garza, 34, and Virginia Vilotti, 20, were in the rear passenger seat of the Lincoln, the report said.

A judge sentenced Garcia to three years of probation and eight days of community service with credit for the day he was in jail. He can only use his driver's license on a restricted basis for 180 days.Garcia recently signed a new contract to play with the Cleveland Browns.

I know I had to spend a weekend in jail and I live in CA. I was nowhere near his drunkened state. I think he should go to AA... maybe he was just depressed at his horrid season?
