CARLISLE, Pa. — The wife of state Budget Secretary Charles Zogby will spend three years on probation for fleeing police and drunk-driving after running a stop sign last year.

Georgina Zogby was also ordered Tuesday to pay $850 in fines related to the July 2011 pursuit that required police to use a spike strip to stop her car.

Zogby was convicted in September of fleeing police, DUI and two summary traffic offenses in connection with the pursuit in the Harrisburg suburbs. During her sentencing she said she understand what she did was wrong.

Cumberland County Judge Edward Guido says Zogby's efforts to turn her life around and maintain sobriety convinced him to sentence her on the low end of the law's requirements.
