Secret Service Agent Gets Time Served for Drunken Driving in Iowa

Secret Service agent Daniel Valencia’s drunken driving ordeal in Iowa has come to an end.

The WCF Courier reports that Vaencia, who had gone to Decorah, Iowa ahead of President Obama’s visit last year, was sentenced Friday to two days in jail, but credited with time served. He was off-duty when arrested.

Valencia, 40, of D.C., was sentenced Friday in Winneshiek County District Court  in Iowa.

The paper reported that he had entered an Alford plea, which means he did not admit guilt but admitted there was sufficient evidence for a conviction.

He was arrested Aug. 13 at about 1:30 a.m. after he ran a red light.

He must also pay a $1,250 fine and surcharge of $437, the paper reported. But the court will waive those costs if he produces a temporary restricted driver’s license to the court within 30 days, the paper reported.
