LOGAN–Joseph Olive, 27, of Logan, was sentenced to 20 days in the Cache County Jail in 1st District Court April 27. Olive was charged with driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license, both class B misdemeanors.

David Perry, Olive’s attorney, suggested that Olive be able to keep his job while serving his sentence because he was in stable employment already at this point in time. Judge Thomas Willmore complied with the request and Olive is to serve his sentence on the weekends and work his job during the week. He is to report to the Cache County Jail every Friday after he gets of work for the next nine weekends until he has served a total of 20 days. Olive was given credit for two days that he served in jail at the time of his arrest.

Judge Willmore was pleased that Olive was taking action in his life and keeping a steady job.

Bararba Lachmar, attorney for the state, said the state agrees with the sentence and thinks it’s fair for Olive to be able to keep working at his job while serving out his sentence.

Olive was arrested Oct. 25, 2008, in Logan after driving under the influence. His drivers license had been suspended at the time of his arrest.
