Cook County Judge Sheila McGinnis was sentenced this week to 18 months of supervision and fined $1,000 after she pleaded guilty to drunk driving. The Beverly resident refused to take a breathalyzer test in May of last year when she crashed her SUV into the back of a minivan in south suburban Tinley Park.

The judge could have been sentenced to a year in jail.

McGinnis' driver's license was suspended after her arrest. But she was able to resume driving December 24.
