TRUMBULL, Conn. -- A member of the state Board of Education from Trumbull who was arrested on drunken driving charges four times this year, has been sentenced to prison for violating his probation, according to the Connecticut Post.
Stephen Wright, 62, had been arrested in November after failing to show up for a meeting with his probation officer, according to the Connecticut Post. It was also discovered that he had provided a fake address and phone number to probation officials, the Connecticut Post reported.
Wright pleaded guilty on Friday to violating his probation, and was sentenced to 11 months in prison, suspended after he serves seven months, according to the Connecticut Post. Following his prison sentence he will serve two years and nine months on probation, according to the Connecticut Post.
Wright was appointed to the state Board of Education by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in 2011 and previously served as the chair of the Trumbull Board of Education. He was arrested four times in 12 weeks at the beginning of the year, and served 120 days in prison, which he completed in September.
