Drunk Driver Kills Deputy Directing Traffic

A man with two prior convictions for DWI was recently sent to jail for 99 years for killing a deputy while the deputy was directing traffic. At trial, the jury convicted the man of aggravated assault causing serious bodily harm to a public servant and murder. The driver’s blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the accident.

The 99-year sentence applied to the murder charge. Another 42 years were added to run concurrently for the assault conviction.

It never, ever pays to drive while under the influence of alcohol. No one is immune from being caught. No one is immune from the possibility of killing someone and/or themselves. If you insist on drinking, do not drive – period. If you have been involved in an accident with a negligent drunken driver, speak with a competent DWI attorney to protect your rights.
