Dillard University President Marvalene Hughes was arrested and booked with misdemeanor drunken driving in April after sideswiping another car and causing an accident, according to court records. Hughes was visiting the California city where she used to live.
She has pleaded innocent. Her case will go to court in Modesto on Tuesday, but she signed a waiver so her attorney could resolve the case without her, according to The Modesto Bee.
Hughes has been Dillard's president since July 2005. Before that, she was president of California State University, Stanislaus, for 11 years.
She still has a home in Modesto, according to The Bee
