This is in response to the Nov. 2 Herald article, “Judge gets day in jail for DUI.”
I see a double standard here. In 2008, I was pulled over for a bad tail light and arrested. I blew a 0.084 and was convicted and sentenced to 10 days in work release, along with a suspended license. Later, I was picked up on bogus warrants I was not aware of, twice, resulting in a total of 33 years in jail and $10,000 in fines. It took me eight years just to get back on the road.
This judge was over the legal limit (0.122 and 0.115) and wrecked her car. Fortunately, no on was hurt or killed. Still, all this judge got was a slap on the wrist. She said, “it has and will continue to have an impact on me.”
In my case, it had and continues to have an impact on me for eight years of my life that I’ll never get back.
Justice? Two sets of laws?
