I’m certainly not going to argue against the overturning of the original sentence though Deano comes out of this with zero credit, quite rightly. I’d forgotten he originally didn’t want to serve community service due to his punditry (why??) which he will do now. An interesting turn around! The following is taken word for word from the BBC, reading the final sentence, is this an admission of drink driving, which of course he hasn’t been charged with?

Judge Everett said the district judge had been right to jail Saunders but, because of his previous good character and the prospect of rehabilitation, he could now suspend the sentence.
"The sheer shame is going to live with you for the rest of your life," he added.
"You should literally hang your head in shame by what you did.
"I suggest you take the opportunity to tell others that it really isn't worth it. Drink-driving is a terrible thing."
In a statement released by the League Managers Association, Saunders said: "I want to apologise to the court, my family and all of the people I have let down as a result of my actions.
"I made a terrible error of judgment for which I have been rightly punished, and I wholeheartedly regret that it happened.
"I accept that I have been given an opportunity by the court and I hope that people can learn from my experience. The message is a simple one - don't ever drink and drive."
