Baldwin County Circuit Judge Joseph Norton sentenced former Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine to 60 days in the Baldwin County Jail for a pair of probation violations related to marijuana-laced brownies, opiates and a trip to New Orleans last year.
According to court documents Nodine, 52, admitted he violated the terms of his probation by leaving the state without permission and failure to avoid injurious or vicious habits. Nodine allegedly tested positive for opiates and marijuana during a random drug screening Nov. 6 and was observed outside of the state without permission at the Superdome in New Orleans Dec. 6.
Court documents show Nodine will be restored to a supervised probationary status following his 60-day sentence.
Nodine was booked into the Mobile County Jail Dec. 11, just 14 months after he was freed from a two-year sentence in Baldwin County for perjury, ethics violations and harassment charges.
Previously, he served 15 months in a federal prison after pleading guilty to being a drug user in possession of a firearm.
