NORTH WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) -- Atlantic County Surrogate Jim Curcio has pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated for the second time in two years.
Curcio also pleaded guilty to refusing a breath test after he was stopped by Mullica Township police in April.
A judge on Monday suspended Curcio's license for two years, ordered him to pay fines and perform community service, and install a breath-activated ignition device in his car.
Curcio previously pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in 2010.
Curcio told The Press of Atlantic City he felt it would be better to accept responsibility to put the case behind him.
The Republican says he's not going to resign because he doesn't believe the case will have an adverse effect on his ability to perform his duties.
