Chief's daughter has history of drunken driving

Brandi Dorn, 25, of Queen Creek admitted to driving impaired Jan. 31 on Gilbert Road near U.S. 60.

Police said Dorn lost control of her car and hit two people, sending them to the hospital. Dorn told police she had one beer and two shots of whiskey earlier in the day, a police report states.

She will receive credit for 134 days for time already served.

Dorn and her mother cried during the sentencing at Maricopa County Superior Court in Mesa.

Dorn’s father, police Chief Tim Dorn, did not attend Friday’s hearing.

The victims hurt in the crash declined to comment. Dorn still faces a lawsuit for the incident.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office said Dorn could have faced up to 7 1/2 years in prison. She has been arrested four times on suspicion of DUI since 2002.

Her sentencing was originally scheduled for Dec. 7, but the judge reset the date after a miscommunication between attorneys.

Dorn is the second daughter of a local police chief to serve jail time for drunken driving in recent weeks.

The daughter of Scottsdale police Chief Alan G. Rodbell pleaded guilty to drunken driving earlier this month.

Cody Nicole Rodbell, 22, spent one day in jail on Tuesday, court records state.
