Unusual drunk driving sentence


June 14, 2008

In Indiana, as part of a sentence after being convicted of drunk driving causing serious bodily injury, a woman was required to leave the wrecked car in her front yard until she completes three years of probation. The woman also had a blood alcohol level of a .317, nearly four times the legal limit in Indiana. This was also her third drunk driving offense. What the sentencing judge probably did was create a traffic hazard as a result of the distraction caused by placing the wrecked car in the woman’s front yard for three years. It looks like Alabama may be one of the first states in the country to require DUI convictions to stay on a person’s record for life. Almost all states have a limit as to when prior misdemeanor DUI convictions can be considered when there is a new offense occurring within a certain number of years.
