Mesa City Councilman Ryan Winkle pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of extreme DUI and will serve six days in jail and 49 days of home detention.

Winkle will begin his jail time Friday at Lower Buckeye Jail, according to his attorney. After the weekend, he will have a 12-hour work release for the remaining days.

“I feel relieved, very relieved because we’ve been kind of in a holding pattern just waiting to see what’s going to happen and now finally we can kind of move on with things,” Winkle said in an interview with The Arizona Republic after he accepted the plea agreement.
