Felony DWI Trial Going On

These cases are tough to win from a defense standpoint because the State has the right, and obligation, to prove the defendant has twice before been convicted of DWI. And even though the jury is instructed that those two prior convictions are no evidence that he was intoxicated this time, that's not the ideal position for a criminal defendant. One potential juror, who said she was against alcohol in general, said "I already feel an agitation towards this man." As I always say, I don't care how potential jurors feel so long as they tell the lawyers and the judge about it. Meaning: She's not getting on the jury.

We'd have fewer prisoners if we had more chain gangs in prison.

Oh yeah 1:46, lets hope the drunk gets off to run over someone. Maybe it will be you. But only the good die young.

2:47,
i think 1:46 was being sarcastic. i don't know for sure, but it reads that way. i had to read it twice to almost get twisted like you did. settle down a lil bit, relax, enjoy the beautiful day.....

arbitrary .08 BAC set by the state, millions and millions of folks go to happy hour/dinner everyday (and go over .08 BAC) without any incident - so doesn't seem there is very much of a DUI "problem". So, yes, we are pulling for the defense - was just an accident and no need to ruin someone's life.
