The attorney for state lawmaker Monica Youngblood is firing back after claims she abused her office during her DWI arrest.

Representative Monica Youngblood was convicted last week of aggravated DWI for this arrest back in May.

The attorney general sent a letter, informing her that her conduct is a clear violation of the governmental conduct act.

They say Youngblood clearly used her position as a lawmaker to try to influence officers.

Now, Youngblood’s attorney responded to the AG’s Office saying it was “no coincidence” that the office made the claim weeks before the general election.

It also denies there’s a request for personal benefit from Youngblood during the DWI arrest.
