New driver gets two years of probation after DUI arrest

A new driver who pleaded guilty to a drunken driving offense has been sentenced to two years probation and ordered to perform 240 hours of community service, a Florida judge ruled Wednesday.

Michael Hulson, 34, pleaded guilty last year to driving under the influence and driving without a valid license in connection with a crash that killed his pregnant wife in December 2016.

Hulson is one of the first drivers in the country to be sentenced to probation under Florida’s DWI law.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said in the court filing that HulSON was a “dangerous drunk” who was “unaware of the dangers” that his driving posed.

He was also the only driver to have an accident during his probation period, according to the documents.

The judge ordered Hulsson to attend community service and a substance abuse program during the two years, and to pay $4,000 in restitution.

He also had to submit to an alcohol screening, the documents said.

In addition to community service work, Hulshson had to attend a sobriety checkpoint in front of his probation officer, the judge said.

Hulsnson will be required to wear a monitoring bracelet and must complete 12 hours of treatment a week, according the documents, which were provided to ABC News by the Department of State.
