Jorgenson faces up to six months in jail and up to a $2,000 fine for the Class B misdemeanor charges. He could also be sentenced to probation.
Give me a break... No wonder So many people drink and drive, the charges just don't add up. We need stiffer sentences for this kind of stuff..... He could have killed someone.
Wait a minute ! How can you you judge him before he's bee found guilty ? What ? Are you a judge ?

Defense argued that fatigue from 20 hours without sleep caused Ricky to collide with the parked DPS vehicle, while the office worked an accident. Ricky admitted that he had 3 or 4 beers before leaving the club. So, Ricky was fatigued and intoxicated, to some degree, when he collided with the parked DPS car? And, if it were fatigue and just legally intoxicated, to which Ricky admitted, why would he refuse to take a breathalyzer or blood test? Furthermore, if Ricky was not legally intoxicated, why did he hire "an expert" lawyer in DWI matters? Some "expert," indeed. That was a big waste of money, which works for justice. The citizens of Orange County have good common sense and can spot a loser drunk when they hear the evidence.
He was innocent until PROVEN GUILTY in a Court of Law. Now, he faces probation and a fine, with probably no jail time because, as City Council Representative David Slaughter put it, "I don't see why he would need to lose his job so long as probation (or whatever sentence given) doesn't interfere with his job. He's done a fine job." The City Manager should be held to a higher standard of accountability, not to a much lower one than that applied to any common arrogant drunk.
Think about this: Mr. Jorgenson, while awaiting trial, ran a criminal background check on several candidates and then hired the Vidor Chief of Police. That's ridiculous!!!! If he had any sense of ethics, he would have recused himself.
I submit to everyone that Ricky Jorgenson is an arrogant alcoholic who nearly killed a DPS officer and others at an accident scene, while driving while intoxicated (convicted) and "fatigued."
I pray the honorable court sentences this arrogant, criminally negligent drunk jail time and that the Vidor city council take appropriate action.
Why are you so vindictive ?

I guess with a record like "Ricky's" this is why Giddings city councel had to meet behind closed doors to hire this man. "Ricky" or Ronald should fit right in with all the other drunks here that also never get anything but probation.
