Why would it be unauthorized use instead of auto theft? Has she ever had permission to drive the ambulance in the past?

Its a step down from a felony, probably some mitigating circumstances we're unaware of.

Maybe because she drove it one block?

Maybe Dumler really is doing something for his Scottsville constituents: He is using his legal acumen to help others plead to misdemeanors instead of getting hit with the felonies as they rightly deserve. He should know!

What exactly are you saying? That we should incarcerate her at a cost of ~$50k/year of taxpayer money--in addition to ruining her life/job prospects so she's got to go on the dole when she gets out--just because she was drunk one night and felt like taking an ambulance on a two block joy ride?

yes. you break the law, you pay the price. why don't you do something to change the laws if you don't like them? do you condone breaking the law? would you just like to have a society where there is no law and anyone can do as they wish? you are free to move away or make a change...either in your way of thinking or in the laws themselves.

She was drunk driving she should be punished with a DUI and steeling and anything else they and charge her with. You would feel different about her punishment if she wrecked and killed a loved one or if that ambulance was needed to go help one of your loved ones.

why were the keys left in the ignition of the ambulance in the first place.....ambulances are not sacred and are subject to theft just like any other vehicle.....perhaps the driver of the ambulance should have some remedial training...i.e. remove the key when not in use....or left unattended....

there is no justification for stealing a vehicle just because a key is left in the ignition. stealing is stealing. if you leave a window open at your home and someone comes inside while you are gone and steals from you, should you be held responsible for leaving the window open?

Who are you? The Thought Police? Maybe we should all have to blow into our steering wheels every time we put the key into the ignition. Maybe everyone should be presumed guilty and have to prove their innocence.

"Stealing" implies you KEEP the property you take. Comprende?

So I take it you've never gone 60 in a 55? Maybe we should throw you in jail for doing so. After all, you could've hurt someone. In theory. But you didn't. Shall we arrest you anyway?

Grow up you simpleton.

that is ridiculous! so if someone takes your car and the police find it a few blocks away, you will not press charges? you wouldn't want them accused of stealing just because they were caught?

i have done 60 in a 55. there is a difference between that and TAKING AN AMBULANCE that doesn't belong to you. also, she was caught for doing what she did and they are pressing charges. i have passed cops going 60 in a 55 and they didn't stop me, arrest me or press charges. sounds like you have a little experience with taking something that does not belong to you. i guess, from your attitude, that you got caught. simpleton crook.

she has been charged with "unauthorized use of a motor vehicle."
"2913.03 Unauthorized use of a vehicle.

(A) No person shall knowingly use or operate an aircraft, motor vehicle, motorcycle, motorboat, or other motor-propelled vehicle without the consent of the owner or person authorized to give consent. "

COMPRENDE???
