A Casper lawyer pleaded guilty last month to drunk driving, and a federal judge sentenced him to a year of unsupervised probation for the conviction.

The case dates to earlier this year, when a Grand Teton National Park ranger pulled over the lawyer, Todd Hambrick, in the park. The ranger filed documents stating Hambrick’s blood alcohol content was more than than twice the legal limit when he was pulled over. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped another two citations, one pertaining to another subsection of the same drunk driving law and another for failing to comply with a traffic control device. Hambrick was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine as part of the sentence.

Casper attorney Don Fuller, who represented Hambrick in the case, did not immediately respond to a late Monday afternoon request for comment. Fuller has previously declined to comment on the case.

Hambrick has recently been in the public eye for his role in an ongoing wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Casper and two of its police officers. He represents the mother of Douglas Oneyear, whom Casper police shot and killed by last year. The wrongful death case is on hold while one of the defendant police officers serves a deployment with the Wyoming National guard.

The wrongful death case is expected to continue next year.
