Ten-time DUI offender will spend just three days in jail

A man convicted for the 10th time for drunken driving will spend just three days in jail after being sentenced Friday by a Leavenworth County District Court judge, prosecutor Todd Thompson said.

Lloyd Henson, 57, of Kansas City, Kan., will spend the rest of his mandatory six-month sentence under house arrest. Thompson’s office had asked Judge Gunnar Sunby for the maximum 12 months in jail.

Henson was arrested in September 2011 while driving in the wrong lane on Kansas 7 with an open container of alcohol. He failed a sobriety test. His license had been suspended since 2006 and he had no insurance.
