Apr 19, 2013 — Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was taken away in handcuffs following her court appearance this morning when she pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated.

Lehmberg's blood alcohol content was reportedly 0.23 -- nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08, which automatically upgrades the charge from a Class B misdemeanor, to a Class A misdemeanor (since the BAC was over .15).

In addition to 45 days of jail time, her driver's license is suspended for 180 days. Does she have 45 days of vacation? Who will operate as DA during that time? How will she get to and from work for 6 months without a drivers license?

Meanwhile, Lehmberg STILL says she will not step down from her position. Again, there is something seriously wrong with this picture...Keep getting support for her removal from office!
