    If found guilty, he needs to do some prison time as both punishment and a deterrent. He has had his opportunity to learn and it’s apparently not worked. Sooner or later, he’s going to injure or kill someone else and/or himself. No doubt, his conduct has already negatively impacted his family and others close to him. DUI always needs to be treated harshly in conjunction with court-ordered alcohol and mental health counseling. It has always amazed me at the number of people who drive under the influence of alcohol – not to mention DUI Drugs.

      100% agree with you. I don’t think we give enough punishment and rehab support at the first sign of alcohol abuse. Too many innocent victims die due to this growing problem in our country.
