The public defender arrested on alcohol-related charges after being caught with an Akron Municipal Court judge in a parked car has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Catherine Loya will have her license suspended until Feburary 4 and had to pay fines upwards of $800 in Barberton Municipal Court.
Loya's 180-day jail sentence was suspended by Judge Christine Croce, who ordered her to attend a three-day intervention program, complete an outpatient alcohol program, and have her alcohol consumption monitored electronically for 180 days.
Loya was found guilty of DUI-related charges in September, stemming from a February incident involving Judge Joy Malek Oldfield.
Catherine Loya was assigned to Judge Oldfield's court as an assistant public defender and was practicing in the courtroom weeks after the incident.
The Akron Bar Association investigated the matter, however the results have not been make made public.
