Here in VA one does not even have to be operating the vehicle. Just sitting in the drivers seat with the keys in the ignition, whether the engine is running or not, is enough to be arrested and charged if your BAC is high enough.

Here's how we would do it in the real world.

We would look at the judges record and compare all the previous cases of similar incidents and look at the judgement that was given.

We would then compare it to what this man received.

We would also interview the judge to find out his reasoning as well as the individual and arresting officers to determine all the circumstances.

We would then be able to make a decision based off empirical evidence whether this judge gave out favorable treatment.

Has anyone here done any of that or are you all just jumping to conclusions?

The proof is in the story. Read it again. Try to use a little common sense. Unfortunately at this point I'm not sure you would be able to see the truth if even if it had been you he hit, and left.

I'm afraid that no matter how many times you say it, it's still not going to sink in.
Hopefully, the empty box will come back and read this thread when she gets another DUI and she'll see what an immature brat she sounds like.
I don't care how lucky someone believes they are, luck always runs out eventually.

The real lucky person in this story is the person this Creep hit, along with every other motorist who was on the road that night.

The Irony of this is, his uncle Chief Deputy Commonwealth Attorney Colin Stolle Just this January claimed that cracking down on DUIs would be his top priority. He was quoted as saying, "DUIs are a problem and it affects everybody and we as a community have to make a stand"

Hows that working out for you, Colin?

criminal case info


I was wondering if the Commonwealth has a system in which you can track every single arrest through the entire court process all the way to the final disposition of the case.

Like this young woman who need to find another hobby other than shoplifting-which she appears not to be very good at.

If it does can you post the original arrest and booking information. I might want to have someone look into to this.

Not sure really. But if that kind of info is out there, chances are you can find it online, if you're willing to do a lot of digging. Unless the records are sealed I'd imagine they would be available somewhere.

And I agree, She doesn't really seem to have a knack for thievery.

Found our local court web page with the basic case info. This link will take you to the search results for his last name, from there you should be able to click the link for each specific entry for him.
