Arapahoe County deputy sentenced for DUI on duty

Jeffrey Vincent was convicted of two misdemeanor counts

Posted

Arapahoe County Sheriff's Deputy Jeffrey Vincent was sentenced on Feb. 1 to a year of supervised probation, fined $600 and ordered to undergo an alcohol evaluation, a news release from the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office said.

Vincent, 45, was found guilty on Jan. 12 of driving under the influence and of prohibited use of a weapon, both misdemeanor counts.

Deputy District Attorney Francisco Martinez, who prosecuted the case with Chief Deputy District Attorney Brian Sugioka, asked the court to sentence Vincent to probation.

“Vincent should not allow this case to define him,” Martinez said, “but rather learn from it as he moves forward.”

The incident occurred Jan. 3, 2017, when a deputy reported that he thought Vincent might be intoxicated on duty. Vincent's assignment that day was to transport inmates from jail to the courthouse.

A blood test administered about four hours later that day showed his blood-alcohol content was 0.081 percent, above the legal limit for driving.
