Guilty plea spares Oxley more jail time

December 3, 2009

A former state representative avoided further jail time by pleading guilty on Wednesday to misrepresenting himself as a lawmaker. Dennie Oxley Jr., last year's Democratic candidate for Indiana lieutenant governor, was found intoxicated at a gas station in June. He was not a state representative at the time, but tried to tell police he had immunity from arrest because he was a lawmaker. He received a one-year suspended sentence.
