Parole board sets conditions for Gordon House

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Notorious drunk driver must use an interlock, check in frequently


A parole board met this morning to set the conditions of release for Gordon House, who became a poster boy for drunk driving issues after he was convicted for a drunken driving crash that killed a mother and her three daughters in 1992. 

House, who is set to be released March 6, will be required to use an ignition interlock on any car he drives for the next two years, and will be under the highest level of parole supervision, said Parole Board Executive Director Ella Frank. House will be required to check in with a parole officer frequently at first, and the conditions may be relaxed over time depending on his success.
