You unfortunately can't follow the link that robertskelton-ga
provided, because the Florida Department of Corrections website
doesn't allow it. Instead, go to this page:

Enter "Kimball" into the "Last Name" field
Hit the "Submit Request" button
Click on the "Supervised Population Search Results" link
Click on "Kimball, Bruce"

Now you're looking at the information on Bruce Kimball. Current
location "Interstate Compact" means he's been relocated to another
state. Supervision Type "Probation Felony" tells us that he's out on
probation. And Supervision Begin Date of "11/24/1993" is when that
probation started, as robertskelton-ga pointed out.

There is a road safety video produced in 1991 about Kimball's DUI

The original sentence was for 17 years, but the Florida Corrections
page shows he's done in 2008, which would be a total of 20 years.
Also, probation is usually part of the judge's original sentence
(unlike parole, which is decided by a board after some amount of time
has been served.) And all the accounts I found of the intial sentence
say it was for "17 years in jail."

That sounds like it might be possible that a deal was struck after the
initial sentence, possibly in conjunction with the making of that PSA.
5 years in prison and 15 on probation instead of 17 in prison.

His prison details are here:

I get the impression that he served some prison time, and has been on
probation since 11/24/1993. Perhaps another researcher knows more
about this.
