DUI case: Archbishop Cordileone pleads guilty before he’s installed

Friday, October 5, 2012

Turns out San Francisco’s new archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone—installed yesterday amid ceremonial splendor at St. Mary’s Cathedral—quietly disposed of his drunk driving charges three days earlier. Through an attorney Cordileone pleaded guilty Monday to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless driving stemming from his August arrest in San Diego.

He was sentenced to three years probation and given a $1,120 fine. The prelate thus avoided the embarrassment of an arraignment (that had been scheduled for next Tuesday) five days into his tenure. LA Times
