    Sorry guys, but did you miss the third time part? (none / 0) (#5)
    by KG One on Sat May 18, 2013 at 07:30:38 PM EST
    This isn't his first go around with hitting the bottle and then hitting the street.

    I've more than a few run-in with alchies who tried to drive under my truck. So he won't be getting very much sympathy from me.

    And like it or not, under Michigan Law, Mr. Walton got off lightly. He could've gotten five year for what he did.

    According to the SoS:

    Third Offense Within Lifetime (any combination) is a Felony

    Operating While Intoxicated

    $500 to $5,000 fine, and either of the following:

    • 1 to 5 years imprisonment
    • Probation, with 30 days to 1 year in jail.

    Add to that...

    • 60 to 180 days community service.
    • Driver's license revocation and denial if there are 2 convictions within 7 years or 3 convictions within 10 years. The minimum period of revocation and denial is 1 year (minimum of 5 years if there was a prior revocation within 7 years).
    • License plate confiscation.
    • Vehicle immobilization for 1 to 3 years, unless the vehicle is forfeited.
    • Possible vehicle forfeiture.
    • Vehicle registration denial.
    • 6 points added to the offender's driving record.
    • Driver Responsibility Fee of $1,000 for 2 consecutive years.

    With any luck, he'll look for some help after he gets out.
