Amanda Davis, former anchor for Atlanta Fox-owned station WAGA, got a year of probation and 40 hours of community service after last June’s DUI arrest.

This is Davis’ third DUI charge in Atlanta. The sentencing took place in November 2015.

Davis requested a leave of absence from her new station WGCL after getting arrested for the DUI before the CBS affiliate’s Just a Minute commentaries she was supposed to be a part of started airing.

In April 2013, she retired from WAGA after taking a leave of absence for a DUI arrest in November 2012. In that case, she was found not guilty on the DUI and reckless driving, but was guilty of not maintaining her lane and fined $200.
