<quoted text>This is just food for thought. One David is a non violent offender and it was his first time. In the boating accident I believe he was a repeat offender of some kind and the kid's aunt is a state representative and has some judicial connections that got the defendant to serve a stiffer sentence and also since it was a boating accident they are trying to send a message that boats will be treated like cars when it involves a DUI.
And the family has sued fox water way agency and spring lake marina which is ridiculous. Accidents happen unfortunately but you can't blame a marina. I could see fox water way have stricter guild lines like zero drinking and driving but how is it their fault that the child was killed?

It is good he is remorseful. It is also good the family is understanding and forgiving. None of this should matter when it comes to protecting the public at large from a drunk driver. Reckless homicide resulting from driving drunk is not an accident. An accident is an event that is not planned or intended : an event that occurs by chance. David's excessive drinking to the point of being drunk did not happen by chance. He mostly likely planned to drink and likely did not plan to find an alternate means of transportation without putting us all at risk. None of the actions of him or anyone else involved in a DUI accident happens by chance.Prosecutors and judges should consider the wishes of the victim's family in plea deals, however their first obligation must be to protect the public

I was wondering why this thread resurfaced, now I see. I think he got off way too easy the first time, and by violating probation and getting shit-faced (look at the blood alcohol level), he remains a danger to the public. Did he drive himself to that probation check in? Is his "tearful remorse" because he's gonig to go back to jail?

Take away his license. Permanently.

It was a car crash. Sheesh, what, you want him to be in jail for 30 years? And why are you even posting on Antioch forum, you live in Arlington. There's probably a thousand other crap going on there. Oh yeah and I don't live in Pekin, my computer has tracking problems, I live in Antioch.

It was a car crash in that he killed someone while driving with drugs in his system. He was given probation which he violated by continuing to abuse drugs and alcohol.

Drugs, alcohol in his system and I believe they tracked his cell phone to show he was also texting when he hit and killed the man. And yes, I live in Antioch too.
