Sentence reduced

Warsaw - The son of the outgoing Polish President Lech Walesa had his two-year sentence for drink-driving reduced to a 21-month suspended term by a Gdansk court. Przemyslaw Walesa, 21, was placed on probation for four years. In April a lower court convicted him of crashing into a van while driving drunk in November 1993; the van driver was hospitalised. The President's son was also convicted of insulting policemen who arrested him after the accident, and fined 5,000 zloty (pounds 1,300). AP
