Q & A

Do you think DUI cases should be allowed to clog up our court system?  Shouldn’t people just have to do the time and pay the fine and be done with it?  I’m all for innocent till proven guilty, but the breath test or blood test prove the guilt for goodness sakes!

    • Sorry that was a long winded question, but people who try to get off of DUI charges make my blood boil.  And I don’t think the penalties are anywhere severe enough.

      My boss missed almost a whole morning of work today because he got called for jury duty.  As it turned out, he didn’t get chosen, but it was a wasted unproductive morning.  I asked what the case was they were trying.  DUI.  He got off because he knew the girl personally—knows her from his favorite bar.   (eyeroll)

    • My oldest brother got caught driving drunk, while under probation for the same thing, he served 4 full years. He didn’t hurt anyone, or even wreck, but was seen and the person called and reported him. I’m not trying to excuse what he did, but 4 yrs is severe...

    • I think if the DUI case caused a wreck, injuries, and death it should be treated accordingly.  It seems that if you‘re a celebrity you get special treatment, but they need to serve their time.

    • I agree with Linda. I feel that if the breathalizer shows you are above the limit...  no need for a trial. That time and money could be better spent trying domestic violence, child abuse cases etc.

    • Four years does seem like a lot if there were no injuries involved, even for a second offense.

    • Unfortunately, we have a screwed up judicial system, but IMO, if it is a first time offense, then a fine, safe driving classes, community service and therapy should be mandated, so long as there were no fatalities.  If a person continues to abuse it, then a tougher sentence should be placed.
