Alexander Whitehouse received his sentencing which included 30hours of community service, training courses on the dangers of drunk driving, and he will owe a $250 fine along with any other court fees, and a suspended license for the next three months. The Senator, a caring father, says that he hopes his son will learn from his mistake.

Mr. Whitehouse states that his son will not only have to suffer the consequences held by the court, but he will also have repercussions for his actions at home.
