PHOENIX (AP) -- A former GoDaddy executive campaigning to be Arizona's next governor is calling a past drunk-driving conviction a mistake that she still regrets.

The Arizona Capitol Times reported Tuesday that Christine Jones was found guilty of driving under the influence in 2006.

The 45-year-old Jones told the Times that she learned a lesson from the DUI and has never had another incident since. Jones also says she went to court and "paid my dues like everyone else."

According to court records, Jones was convicted of misdemeanor charges of driving with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or more. She received a 10-day jail sentence but nine days were suspended after Jones completed an alcohol screening program.

Jones is seeking the Republican nomination in the 2014 gubernatorial race.
