RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson businessman Stuart Irby is about to begin a two-day jail sentence. Ridgeland Municipal Judge Hal McCarley sentenced him to serve 48 hours and to pay a thousand dollar fine.

Irby had entered an open plea earlier this week for a first offense DUI. He had sought to avoid jail time based on his medical problems from a fatal accident two years ago.

That accident occurred when Irby's wife, Karen plowed their car into a truck killing two doctors on Old Canton Road.

Karen Irby is serving time in the state prison in Rankin County for manslaughter.

Stuart Irby is also awaiting a possible indictment for cyberstalking in an incident earlier this year.
