i've been sober 19 years now and i am STILL AMAZED that anyone can still be driving long enough to get his third much less 5th. i think if we held the judge that let him off the hook from the previous one liable you wouldn't see em get to their 4th, 5th or even 7TH ! like i said hold the judge accountable. how can you argue a guy w/ 3 or 4 DUI'S that he should be allowed to drive ?.........i'm waiting...

He will be found 'incompetent' and the charges will be dropped.

Any bets?

The words"Could be sentenced to life should be corrected to Shall be life".
"D.W.I. is Americas only socially accepted crime of violence". Even Kate Hogan,D.A. in Warrensburgh, N.Y. commented on that this a.m. in the Post Star on the Goldblatt case and he being eligible for Parole in 7 Years on a 8 to 25 year sentence.This is an insult to all Victims of these "HIGHWAY TERRORISTS".in All States!. No excuses, Oh he an alcoholic, but no one, forces an alcoholic to operate a motor vehicle after partaking in said Alcoholic Beverage.

P.S. A B.A.C. of .25+ is a mite bit too high!.

Our system is weak, innocent until proven guilty should not be for all cases, especially when caught red handed. This guy is a drunk and a loser, no one should ever get 3 , never mind 5,6,7 judges and attorneys are the problem because the court system cares more about cash than justice irs time to start getting rid of the losers. When you have weeds in the garden you pluck them ,well time to start plucking. DWI 10 years min no parole.if you kill someone life in prison, no parole if the consequences were strong you would see the figures drop and for the stupid ones ,they pay the price! Wake up america, The death penality should also be used more often for the harden criminals and for all the people who oppose it ,you get to take care of these losers in your own home,rapists murderers,ect. See how much you care then, Pluck the weeds!!!

The marijuana maintenence program is a cop out. You can't say you are sober if you are smoking weed.

There is a big difference, but if someone is relying on a substance they are not sober.

what really...i mean REALLY kills me "really" is people who stand on their soap box , but, never use their real name. i use mine really,or whatever your sober handle is. if you want to have an opinion and be part of a community have the testicular fortitude to use your real name. then we can take you seriously....

Sorry Charlie, adding one's real name on a public forum is irrelevant, not to mention idiotic.
