No DWI sentencing date yet for ex-state official Jack Stick 

Former Texas health commission lawyer Jack Stick, found guilty Monday of driving while intoxicated, will be sentenced within the next two weeks, but no final date has been set, Travis County court officials said Tuesday.

The former state representative and prosecutor faces between three and 100 days in Travis County Jail or up to two years of probation and a $2,000 fine for the misdemeanor.

In a trial that began Friday, prosecutors sought to show that Stick had been driving erratically and refused field sobriety tests in an attempt to avoid incriminating himself, though his blood-alcohol content level that night had been above the legal limit of 0.08. His defense called into question the reliability of the results and contended that the officer who pulled Stick over had no probable cause to arrest him.
