CAMBRIDGE -- A Kewanee man was sentenced in Henry County Circuit Court on Tuesday to four years probation and fined $25,000 for his fourth charge of driving under the influence.

Robert A. Lambert, 56, also will serve 180 days in jail and do 200 hours of public service work that benefits children. Two young children were in the vehicle with him when he was arrested. The charge was filed Sept. 4.

He also was arrested for driving under the influence in 1973, 1990 and 1993, according to court records.

Judge Ted Hamer said the charge already carries a mandatory minimum 90-day jail term and a minimum fine of $25,000. He noted that Mr. Lambert did appear to be a good father, grandfather, husband and employee and had the support of his family.
