Drunken driving case continued for President Obama’s uncle

FRAMINGHAM -- Onyango Obama, the uncle of President Obama, had his drunken driving case continued without a finding today for one year during a brief hearing in Framingham District Court. He also had his driver’s license suspended for 45 days, but his attorney said he would apply for a hardship license.

In earlier court proceedings in the Middlesex County court, Onyango Obama and his attorney, P. Scott Bratton, had criticized the arrest by police, and also the driving record of the arresting officer, Officer Val Krishtal.
