The Seattle Times reports that King County Assessor, Scott Noble, plead guilty to one count of Vehicular Assault in King County Superior Court in the drunk driving case in which he suffered serious injuries. Noble drove the wrong-way on Interstate 5 and hit a car driven by two young women. Both of the women suffered multiple broken bones.
The drunk driving car accident occurred on January 18. After the head-on car accident, Noble’s blood alcohol content was measured at 0.22 percent, almost three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Noble’s sentencing will occur on June 19th. As a first-time offender, he is likely to spend three to nine months in jail. Noble said that he will resign as County Assessor before his sentencing.
Noble, age 58, has held the County Assessor’s job for 16 years.
Vehicular Assault, RCW 46.61.522, can be charged if a person was driving under the influence, driving recklessly or driving without regard to the safety of others.
