in disbelief!

"This verdict sends a message that Tarrant County will not tolerate drunken drivers who endanger the lives of our citizens," said Assistant District Attorney Brooke Panuthos.

You're kidding right? Yeah, Tarrant will tolerate 7 DWI's but not 8. Not very bright Brooke.

"This verdict sends a message that Tarrant County will not tolerate drunken drivers who endanger the lives of our citizens," said Assistant District Attorney Brooke Panuthos, who tried the case with prosecutor Caroline Kim.

So let's be clear...we won't tolerate a person getting their 8th DWI but the prior 7 didn't warrant the same sentence?? Including his other charges over the years?? That's one of MANY things wrong with the Country today....

Great that they got this drunk off the streets before he killed some inocent family,apparently this guy cant fuction in the real world,three cheers for the jury and Judge about time they started handing out stiffer sentences

Good, you are responsible for your actions! This may have saved one of your loved ones life.

I hate that it took 8 DWIs for him to finally do some serious jail-time. As for the message that the Asst DA says it sends; well it tells us we can have 8 DWIs without doing serious jail-time!

Pighunter

Should have got major jail time after second conviction.

Yeah right! This just sends a message you can get up to 8 DWI's before they actually do something!!

Melinda Foley

Wow. They give more time for DWI's then they do for drug dealing or violent crimes against another person or robbery.

Hey, those other seven DWIs were in Dallas County (it says so right there in the article). If you have a problem with him getting let loose after those, take it up with DC.

This guy is now out of society for a long while, and since he's repeatedly proven unable to function within it without endangering others, so much the better.

At least we put him away BEFORE he mowed down someone more innocent.

CDK

It doesn't matter if they were in Dallas County or any other City in America... they should crisscross information and get this guy off ALL City and State streets...Period.
