DescriptionALEXANDRIA, Va. - Disgraced New York Rep. Vito Fossella has been sentenced to five days in jail for drunken driving.

Judge Becky Moore decided Fossella was so drunk he met the legal threshold for a five-day stint in jail. Fossella's May 1 arrest led to revelations he had fathered a child through an extramarital affair.

Buffeted by questions about his personal secrets, Fossella chose not to seek re-election and will leave Congress next month.
