Mark Grace To Serve Time for Dui

It appears that Mark Grace will not face a jury on his felony drunk driving charges stemming from an arrest last August in Scottsdale. He was originally indicted by a grand jury on four felony counts of aggravated DUI. He also had a prior drunk driving charge in 2011. With a second DUI in 15 months, Grace faced nearly four years in state prison. He pled not guilty to all charges and was scheduled to face trial later this year.

Grace is likely best remembered for his place on the Arizona Diamondbacks team that won the 2001 World Series in seven games, but his recent struggles with alcohol garnered a great deal of media attention. He was fired from his job as a television analyst for the Diamondbacks, and his story created controversy over whether low-level drunk driving offenders should face prison time.

However, Grace reached a plea deal with Maricopa County prosecutors and pled guilty felony endangerment and misdemeanor drunk driving. After all, his BAC was reportedly .095, slightly above the legal limit of .08, and well below what would be charged under extreme DUI (.15 and above).The plea is essentially an admission that by driving under the influence, he recklessly endangered another person with a substantial risk of imminent death or physical harm.

As part of the plea deal, Grace will spend four months in county jail, but he will be eligible for a program that will allow him to travel back and forth to work. He will also serve two years of probation following his release.
