Oklahoma's secretary of finance, Preston Doerflinger, is being allowed to have a modified driver's license.
The Department of Public Safety last year revoked his driving privileges for six months because of an alcohol-related arrest in Oklahoma City. He challenged that but a DPS hearing officer this year upheld the revocation, starting June 8.
He filed a petition June 13 in Oklahoma County District Court, seeking the modified license.
A special judge on Wednesday ruled Doerflinger can get the modified license — after he has an ignition interlock device installed in his vehicle. He has until Aug. 6 to make arrangements.
