What's the deal with this? Did you just decide to pull a case out of the file and publish the "facts"? Maybe this is some new Strib thing like publishing the pictures of Johns who get caught soliciting? Either way it's really weak.

So this guy puts multiple lifes at risk by fleeing while being drunk and he only gets 6 months.....On the other side we have a guy who peeped at that Andrews chick and took video and he gets 2 1/2 years. JUST NOT RIGHT!!!!

Look how many W's this guy has had. Any night he was driving drunk he could of killed someone. I guess it touches home when it has happened to your family or friends.

"When was the last time you SPEEDED up? OMG! I thought to be a writer for the paper you had to at least pass a basic college level writing course! Apparently I was wrong. Excuse me, while I tell my 3rd grader that the Star Trib is taking applications!" Please don't teach your 3rd grader anything. Speeded is a word. It hold the exact same meaning as the word sped it just isn't used as much as sped.

He was on probation for his June 2002 conviction. He violated that probation by getting another DUI in September 2003. Why wasnt he sentenced for violating probation? Probation is a joke, they NEVER enforce it! They stay the fines and jail time on the agreement they will remain law abiding and not commit the same or similar crime. I see/here/read about people violating probation all the time with no reprecussion. I believe that it is the courts fault these people re-offend!

She said the DWI was a felony. By virtue of being his 3rd or 4th incident in a ten year period. She said the fleeing was a middemeanor. Although, I don't know why fleeing would only be a Misdemeanor.

Is it ego or what? Why do some opinions carp at the way information is presented. Are they "purists, or semantasists, if that is a word? If you don't like the paper, don't read it.

I'd like to see third time offenders sent to prison for hard time. There is one problem: we'd have to build more prison space. Our prisons right now are releasing prisoners early due to lack of space. Most of us would like to get these guys off the streets, but I doubt we'd support more spending to do so.

If you read the article carefully you would realize that they are using what the police report journalist wrote that.
