Frankie Coleman sentenced to 3 days in jail for DUI

The wife of Columbus mayor Michael Coleman will serve jail time for her drunken driving conviction.

Frankie Coleman this morning changed her plea this morning to the most serious drunken driving charge and was sentenced to serve the mandatory 3 days in jail.

Coleman was arrested this fall after crashing her car into a parked truck in Bexley.

A breathalyzer test determined her blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.

Frankie Coleman told the judge she changed her plea because she wants to get on with her life.

Mrs. Coleman is not required to go to jail immediately, but she must serve her sentence before March 24th.
