An Aurora police officer who lives in Parker pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Annette Brook, 56, was sentenced to 20 days of in-home detention and 12 months of probation by Douglas County Court Judge Susanna Meissner-Cutler Jan. 9.

Brook, while off-duty, collided with a concrete barrier near westbound C-470 and Lucent Boulevard in Douglas County June 17, according to a news release issued Jan. 13. Brooks told investigators she fell asleep at the wheel. Her blood-alcohol content was 0.277. The legal limit is .08.

A loaded handgun was found in a bag in her car, a 2017 Jeep Cherokee, as well, according to the release.

“Nobody is above the law in our community. Police, plumber, principal, or otherwise are equally protected and accountable under our laws,” said District Attorney George Brauchler. “When a well-investigated DUI case is brought to us, we will pursue it without regard to title, occupation, station or demographic. DUI is dangerous, illegal and wrong every single time.”
