The daughter of Michigan U.S. Rep. Candice Miller has been sentenced to probation for driving while visibly impaired and assaulting a police officer.
St. Clair Shores District Judge Mark Fratarcangeli (frat-ahr-kon-'JEL-ee) on Tuesday sentenced 33-year-old Wendy Carmack to one year of probation. He also ordered her to pay $800 in fines and costs.
The St. Clair Shores woman pleaded guilty to the charges in February.
Carmack was arrested Dec. 2 just northeast of Detroit and charged with driving while intoxicated and other counts. Miller, a Harrison Township Republican, said at the time her daughter had a problem.
A message seeking comment was left for defense attorney James Simasko.

    Hey J.D. just be thankful she was not a sports figure. The city more than likely would have had to pay because a police officer had the gall to stop a real hero !!!

    A year of probation and $800 and that's it?! Just goes to show how corrupt and out of whack the MI Judicial system really is. She's 33 and clearly knew how stupid her actions were. This is blatant disrespect being spit in the face of any common citizen that has ever been in the MI court system.
