And mom is still DEAD. Do you think he woke up that morning thinking he was going to kill his mother? I'm sure the keyboard nutclucks want the son dead pronto. I guess they want to show-off to Kasack. RIP mom.

So a girl who is texting could get 5 years but this bum only gets six months? PLUS, he only has to serve time on weekends? Who is this judge!?! I hope we didn't just vote his a$$ back in.

These judges need to be held accountable for laxed sentencing. A bum like this needs to do hard time for such a stupid mistake. We all know that drinking and driving is moronic. Throw the book at these idiots!

A little research shows that this judge just ran uncontested! So he just got re-elected. Arggh!

But a mother who leaves her baby in a car in the summer heat to roast to death gets NOTHING....because it was a "terrible accident"

How do you know he is a bum? Do you know him personally? If you killed YOUR mother "by accident", how would feel?,fool. You make me sick. You have to be a rebublican. I'm sure you never imbibed and drank, huh, perfect person/thing. Your self-righteousness is ugly.

I would venture to say she was just as drunk as he was.
So no pity party here for either.

As the former victim of a drunk driver who used her son's brain surgery as an excuse to become so drunk she rear ended me at 40 mph while at a stop light. I'll agree that this is a sad situation however it's even more sad that a little common sense would probably dictate she was aware of his condition or was drinking with him.

This sentence was bull and he should have served the max allowed by law instead of being given such a light convenient one. Of course there will be a few arsewipes who believe this guy should be tucked in every night with a kiss telling him everything will be ok. This guy is worse than a bum he's a murderer who didn't care how his actions affected anyone else till oh that's right he had an accident and you can bet your arse he's really sorry. Sorry he got caught.

This is simple if you kill expect to die. Enough of this feel good "oh damn I made a mistake really take it easy on me" it will be a strong deterrent to help prevent future situations from happening.

The legal limit is < .08 not .8
but to answer your question,.12 is < .8
A BAC of .8 would be unachievable.

So he is guilty but the monster who murdered a baby by putting it in a microwave is innocent? And the one who scalded her baby to death is let go. Helps to be a black woman when murdering people.

I know him. He *is* a bum. He has gotten away with TOO many wrong-doings over the years. Look up his name on the Clerk of Courts website for Franklin County. That's just a drop in the bucket. Not to mention the things you don't hear about. Weekends of playing cards, watching TV and relaxing aren't a lesson.
