FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Fire chief had already been convicted of DWI charge; judge threw out appeal and conviction

We're digging deeper into the Oak Island Fire Chief John House's DWI charge. So far we've learned from a Brunswick County Court Clerk that House had already been found guilty of his December 2008 DWI charge. The case before Superior Court Judge Ola Lewis was an appeal.

Judge Ola Lewis

How dare you people critize Judge Lewis. She is one of the most capable judges we have ever had. I know her personally, and know Fire Chief House personally.

The Chief admits he made a mistake and it won't happen again. If this had happened to any of the rest of us, there would be nothing about it on the news. WWAY needs to give it a rest. John House is very capable. Is there anyone out there who has not made a mistake? I doubt it. I do live on Oak Island and am proud of it and of our Fire Chief.
