State Sen. Chuck Graham, D-Columbia, pleaded guilty Friday morning to driving while intoxicated at Callaway County Courthouse.

Graham also paid the maximum fine of $500, as well as $122.50 in court costs, according to the clerk of court’s office.

Graham currently has driving privileges; whether he will keep them will be decided in a future administrative hearing.

Graham was arrested Oct. 20 after he was involved in a three-car accident on Green Meadows Road. Graham refused a Breathalyzer test the night of the accident.

In a statement from his office, Graham said he had “made a major error in judgment” and “learned a valuable and life-altering lesson.”
