BURLEY -- A former 5th District Court magistrate judge who previously pleaded guilty to driving under the influence has been cited with driving with an open container of alcohol.

The Times-News reports that 43-year-old Nicole Cannon was stopped June 7 by a Cassia County sheriff's deputy.

She's scheduled to appear in Cassia County court on July 1.

Cannon in December pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and was fined $1,278.50 and ordered to attend 16 hours of alcohol/DUI education classes.

Cannon was charged in April 2012 after she was stopped by a Boise police officer. Two tests found her blood-alcohol level to be 0.239 and 0.221, nearly three times the limit at which a person is considered legally intoxicated.

Cannon resigned her judgeship in late June of 2012.
