JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Supreme Court has ordered the suspension of a judge for sentencing someone in a DUI case after the man had completed the sentence and paid the fine.

The court suspended Lee County Justice Court Judge John Hoyt Sheffield 120 days without pay.

The court record says James Harper was arrested on a DUI charge in 1996 and was assigned to Judge Sheffield's court.
