    I agree with your comment Wilson but I question why she would get 60 days in jail for her 1st offense? There are numerous people driving our streets with many many more DUI’s – why could she get jail time and these other yahoos keep driving?

    • Wilson

      Jail time she is facing is based upon having 4 kids under the age of 10 with her while intoxicated.

    I think some people are becoming more conservative because others are becoming more stupid this lady should not be facing a misdemeanor this should be felonious

    Please reread my comment again DC. Everything that I state is factual and true. I am not pointing out anything more than the facts of the case as reported here and how a normal family behaves. Do you have a problem with that???

      WILSON, YOU MUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY COMMENT… HOW ABOUT YOU REREAD MINE. YOUR NAME WAS NEVER MENTIONED… REREAD MINE AGAIN AND MAYBE YOU’LLUNDERSTAND IT

    Also DC race has nothing to do with this. White men, black men, asian men with multiple DUI’s need to be locked away. Keep drunken drivers off the road because they hurt and kill inocent people. The fact of the matter is, where was the father or fathers of these kids that would allow them to ride with extremely intoxicated woman???
