This is a really good example of what is wrong with the DUI situations in NM. This guy should have been cooling his heels in a jail cell, but since some bleeding heart
judge decided he was a misunderstood, nice guy, he suffered no punishment for his previous two DUI's. The result was another innocent person killed by a worthless drunk.

The family of the victim needs to file a major lawsuit beginning with Dickson and ending with the judge that has continually allowed him off.

The judge who allowed this jackass to be driving in the first place ought to be charged as an accessory in Robert Rowland's murder if you ask me.

To add: I will never understand why these guys have to KILL somebody before the judges will do something about them. One DUI should result in loss of driving privileges for life, and a second should result in hefty jail time. This guy should NEVER have been on the road in the first place.

Just goes to show that these stupid rehab programs don't work worth beans! If this guy had been put away this poor man on his bike would still be alive today! Everyone who let this man go twice before should be removed from duty and charged with accessory...I can't believe this! If we don't have enough facilities to house these creeps then build some MORE! Create jobs for people and take these creeps off the road and put them behind BARS! Unbelievable! Getting so you can't wipe your butt safely anymore for one reason or another! Honestly!

I hadn't even heard about this incident. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones. Another one taken before his time due to ignorance and stupidity. You think you have a Lexus so that gives you the right to drive around drunk all the time...Poor family!
