COLUMBIA COUNTY, FL –  Just days away from jury selection and a full blown trial and a week after County Court Judge William F. Williams, III denied Mr. Kirby’s motions to dismiss the charges against him and suppress the testimony of one of the State’s key witnesses, Columbia County’s number two, Kevin Kirby, had a change of heart.

Tuesday afternoon at about 2:30 pm, in a hastily arranged court appearance, Mr. Kirby agreed to take the standard first time offender DUI plea agreement and pled guilty to driving under the influence. Mr. Kirby’s license remains suspended. He is on supervised probation.

At the present time it is not clear if Mr. Kirby can drive a county vehicle, although since the time of his arrest for drunk driving, Mr. Kirby has been spotted being driven around by different county employees.
