UPDATED STORY 10.16.12: After serving less than two weeks in jail, former State Representative Brad Bennett is now on supervised custody at his Dover home.
On October 4, Bennett began serving a 60-day sentence for DUI in Wilmington in April when he sideswiped a parked police car; he pleaded guilty last month to DUI; it’s his second drunk driving conviction in two years; his first arrest was in Lewes in 2010.
The Department of Corrections says Bennett was placed on supervised custody because he was being compliant and agreed to serve his sentence NOT under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
