6th DUI Conviction, And You Think That's A Stiff Sentence?
If you are convicted of driving under the influence SIX times, you should be doing a hell of a lot more time than this bloke. As reported by phillyburbs.com:
A Warrington man will have to spend 11½ to 23 months in the Montgomery County prison for his sixth drunken driving offense.
Robert Cuthbert, 47, of the 1200 block of Folly Road, also will have to serve an additional three-year probation sentence after he completes his parole time.
Assistant District Attorney Nathan Schadler on Friday explained that the reason for the stiff sentence is because this is Cuthbert’s sixth driving under the influence conviction.
"Stiff sentence" my arse. And check out how drunk he was. “He had way too many,” said Schadler, noting that Cuthbert had a blood alcohol percentage of at least 0.243 percent. That is three times the state’s legal driving limit of 0.08 percent.That, Juice readers, is shitfaced.
“Hopefully this sentence sends a strong message to the public and to him that we will do what has to be done to protect our highways from drunken drivers,” said Schadler.Strong message?
