Colorado Drunk Driving Gets Lawyer, Suspension for Year + Day!

The Legal Profession blawg had this account by Mike Frisch:

"After Work

On April 1, 2009, in Orange County, California, Respondent left work, consumed alcohol, then fled from the police and ran eight red lights and stop signs while exceeding 100 MPH. He then intentionally rammed another vehicle occupied by others in an attempt to cause great bodily injury, and fled the scene of the collision without stopping. Respondent pled guilty to felony evading while driving recklessly, misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, misdemeanor hit and run with property damage, and an amended felony charge of battery on September 29, 2009."
When I have the opinion and a few other details, I'll update this post. 

Alcohol cunning, baffling and powerful.

  1. I've heard similar DWI cases before here in Los Angeles. A friend of mine, who's a Long Beach attorney, told me stories about her experience being a criminal attorney in Los Angeles. Before she transferred back here in Long Beach, she has had a lot of DWI/DUI cases. Her cases didn't involve any serious injury on any side. Good thing this one didn't lead to anything fatal on any party.
