SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County District Attorney said a "chronic offender" was sentenced to prison time and a local program.

The district attorney said Don Longwood plead guilty to one count of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of resisting arrest and one count of receiving stolen property. All of the convictions are misdemeanors.

Longwood is part of the Shasta County Chronic Offender Accountability Program. He was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in Shasta County Jail, with the last 3 1/2 years of the sentence suspended if he completes an in-patient program at Teen Challenge. The DA said Longwood will serve the first year in custody and then be transported to Teen Challenge.

If Longwood fails to complete the program at Teen Challenge, he will serve his entire sentence at the Shasta County Jail.
