The Omaha ABC-affiliate reports that Whitsett pleaded guilty to one count of third-offense misdemeanor DUI. In addition to 30 days in jail, which can be served as house arrest, Whitsett received two years supervised probation.
Whitsett is currently on a leave of absence from KETV. He remains an employee of the station.
“I shouldn’t have been doing this. It almost cost me my job,” Whitsett told the judge in the case. “I don’t plan on doing this again.”
