Ex-Idaho Sen. McGee gets up to 88 days in jail after violating probation
BOISE — Former Republican state Sen. John McGee was led Tuesday from a Boise courtroom in handcuffs after being sentenced to 44 days in jail for disturbing the peace — a charge linked to allegations that he sexually harassed a 25-year-old woman working for him in the Legislature.
McGee was ordered to serve an additional 44 days for violating terms of probation stemming from a 2011 drunken driving conviction, though a judge didn't prohibit fulfilling that sentence through inmate labor detail or community service. He pleaded guilty to both misdemeanors Tuesday.
Ada County prosecutors claim that early in the 2012 session, McGee subjected his female aide to a barrage of sexual innuendo.
The allegations resulted in McGee's departure from the Idaho Legislature later that month.
"On Feb. 7th I acted inappropriately. I used language that I should have not have used," McGee said in court.
