Arizona gubernatorial candidate had DUI conviction

PHOENIX -- A former GoDaddy executive campaigning to be Arizona's next governor is calling a past drunk-driving conviction a mistake that she still regrets.

The Arizona Capitol Times reported Tuesday that Christine Jones was found guilty of driving under the influence in 2006.

The 45-year-old Jones told the Times that she learned a lesson from the DUI and has never had another incident since. Jones also says she went to court and ``paid my dues like everyone else.''

According to court records, Jones was convicted of misdemeanor charges of driving with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or more. She received a 10-day jail sentence but nine days were suspended after Jones completed an alcohol screening program.

Jones is seeking the Republican nomination in the 2014 gubernatorial race.
