Irby headed back to court

Posted: Updated:
RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland municipal prosecutor Boty McDonald tells WLBT News that a sentencing hearing for Stuart Irby has been scheduled for next week. This after the Jackson businessman entered an open plea to first offense DUI, which is a misdemeanor. 

Irby's lawyer will try to convince the court that he should not serve the 48 hours jail time as required by law. 

Irby was also charged earlier this year for cyberstalking. His wife, Karen, is serving time at the state prison in Rankin County for culpable negligent manslaughter. 

Two doctors died after her vehicle collided with theirs a few years ago. 

Stuart Irby has claimed that he still suffers health issues from that accident.
