They should take the daughter and put her in foster care. He did almost kill her.

Why on earth would you make a statment like that? She wasn't the one driving the vehicle. Where is the rest of her Family?

Attempted murder. Is what the charge should be. If you get behind the wheel having taken anything that may impair your driving ability then you are risking not only your life but the lives if everyone on the road.

According to the paper, the father was arrested last summer for public intoxication at SomerSplash (alcohol and meds), so clearly addiction is the issue at hand here.

Imprisonment and further punishment in a situation like this seems counterproductive. Treatment and healing is needed.

When you think that a hammer is the only tool that works, every problem looks like a nail.

Another stupid ass jumps in and tries to talk about things they know nothing about.

Where did he get his alcohol last summer there bubbles for brains? Huh? We weren't even selling here yet. And pills have never been legal to sell, so where'd he get those come from? Or doesn't that fact fit your transparent agenda?

Annoying comment gnats. I swear we need a spray for them around here.

I'm with you retired2. God has control over the Judges. I believe we need to just leave that to them. But I will say this, its but for the grace of God that I never had a wreck with my children in the car when I drove intoxicated. But God spared me and my children and delivered me from addiction over 10 yrs. ago. That makes it awful hard for me to cast stones.

Utter nonsense. God does not control judges, or anybody for that matter. If you believe in God you must of necessity believe in the devil as well, and he has almost as much influence on people as God does. Just look around you at other people’s behavior for proof.

You merely got lucky, God had nothing to do with for it. He did not grant you special dispensation for morally reprehensible behavior but NOT Jasper.

I believe this actually makes you better qualified to do so than anyone else, as long as you admit it was a bad decision and stop hiding behind the ‘God’ nonsense. God changed your heart, he did not protect you from the consequences of your foolish actions.

Well, he has certainly earned my vote for being the sorriest parent of the decade, for what he did to his daughter in the wreck.
How can he look his child in the eyes and see the damage that he, and he alone, inflected upon her?
yep

He will say he couldn't help it he is addicted. Get a slap on the hand for being a bad boy go to rehab but check out after two days because it didn't help. Come back home to his family who will then hand him a beer and some meds when he comes through the door. Mean while joe smoe runs a stop sign on his way to hospital with wife in labor can't pay his ticket goes to jail for a month has to find some way of paying ticket while he is in jail. Jasper will walk free to take a life of someone else

What does that even mean? Are you suggesting no-one should make this guy pay the price for his behavior since everyone's a sinner?

It's nonsense like this that makes the general public consider us christians foolish.

Sin has consequences! Breaking the law has consequences! He should be locked up for at least 20 years.

Rehab for alcohol or drug addiction is one thing, but he might as well got in the car with a loaded gun pointed at his daugthers head and played Russian Rullet.

Everything we do, or don't do. Everything we say, or don't say, MUST have consequences. This is one of few absolutes and is incontrovertible.

Have you heard the riddle that asks 'If a butterfly flaps it's wings in China does it change the weather in America?' The answer is YES, because it must. A year later it may have made an immeasurably small difference, but 10 years later that change would be obvious.
