My coworker has 6 DUIs, all in the same state. He did a grand total of 45 days behind bars.

Floyds punishment doesn't seem too far off from that, sometimes regular guys get let off the hook pretty easy too.


Just nuts. Probably still has a license too.
Nope. Hasn't had a license in nearly a decade, though he's eligible to retest for one after a hearing at the 10-year mark.

would really appreciate a source on this.


Well i have had friends who have gotten DUIs and never did a day of jail. And apparently i live in one of the tougher states on DUI's(Washington). Its its a misdemeanor in most cases in almost every state.

Bargaining

It's possible that you or your attorney can negotiate for an alternative to jail time -- typically community service. For example, California has a 48 mandatory minimum jail sentence, it can be converted to community service.

In Connecticut, the mandatory minimum 48 hours in jail can be negotiated to 100 hours of community service in some cases.

In Ohio, the 3 day minimum jail time for a first DUI can be waived in favor or attendance at a driver intervention program that is combined with a period of probation.

An attorney will know the law in your state, and will know how to negotiate the best possible outcome for your situation.

It isn't just a $500 fine but...

Stallworth admitted to drinking the night prior to the accident. According to early reports Stallworth was legally drunk and was reportedly under the influence of marijuana at the time of the accident. News sources reported that his blood alcohol content was 0.12, over the nationwide legal limit of 0.08.
Stallworth was charged with DUI manslaughter on April 1, 2009; he surrendered to police on April 2, 2009, and was released on $200,000 bail. As a result of a plea deal, he received a sentence of 30 days in the county jail, plus 1,000 hours of community service, 2 years of community control, and 8 years' probation. He has also received a life-time suspension of his Florida state driver's license. On July 10, 2009, Stallworth was released from county jail after serving 24 days of a 30-day sentence.


...still pretty weak for being high, drunk and reportedly flashing your brights to warn a pedestrian to get out of the way on a freeway before striking and killing him. Hopefully this at least serves as a lesson to others than there may be better alternatives to avoiding pedestrians crossing the street than flashing your brights. Studies have shown that applying pressure to the brake pedal is the better method. Adjusting the volume of the radio was tested but its results were pretty equal to flashing your brights which naturally causes many species to freeze and try to evaluate the source and reason for the bright light. The changing of the radio volume does not distract in the same way but is unlikely to give a subtle warning either.


Without derailing this too much, where is your source on that blurb? I haven't seen any other report or story on the situation that states he was high as well as over the limit.
