ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A former sports-talk radio host was sentenced to serve time in a workhouse on Tuesday for felony drug possession and failing to finish two substance abuse programs.
Forty-one-year-old Jeff Dubay of Plymouth is going to serve 180 days in the Ramsey County Correctional Facility for fifth-degree felony drug possession.
Dubay must also undergo a complete chemical dependency treatment program.
When asked in court why he failed to finish two substance abuse programs, Dubay said, "I wasn't ready to quit. It wasn't the right time."
Dubay was sent to a yearlong diversion program and could have had the charge dismissed, but he flunked out of the program.
He got a second chance in Substance Abuse Court in March, but was disqualified after testing positive for cocaine 12 times.
He also failed to report for 11 drug tests since January.
Dubay was a morning-show host at KFAN-AM, but was fired after he was charged in mid-October.
