DUI offender FINALLY loses license for life after 12th offense

Someone received their 12th DUI and is just now losing their license for life:

Why do judges allow people to have some many offenses before revoking their license for life? He's lucky he hadn't been in a fatal accident yet. If he was caught 12 times hard telling how many other times he drove drunk and didn't get pulled over.

Unfortunately, saying someone lost their license "for life" doesn't necessarily mean exactly that.

That woman from Woodville killed a 14 year old boy, and it wasn't even her first DUI.

But she got it back because apparently she's just a swell lady these days and not having a license is such a hardship for her family.

So "for life" basically means "until you can act like a decent human long enough to convince a judge to give it back."

The woman from Woodville got her license back?????? She really did get off with a handslap. I feel for the boys family.

Even if someone loses their license for life doesn't mean they won't drive again. A lot of them just simply drive without a license (and no insurance)

I work in a medical office. We ask for picture ID to verify the patient. The number of times they hand me a State ID card instead of a drivers license is really astounding.

Yes, these folks DROVE a car to our office.

I thought this article may be about the Toledo Fireman that has multiple DUIs and took out part of Boyds Retro candy store a few years ago. He was let off for the first one if memory serves. I think a local prosecutor got in a bit of hot water over it.

The city ended up paying for the repairs to Boyds...don't know why his insurance company didn't pay

But instead, they would rather bring the hammer down on the 1st offender that blows a .09. The Blade editorialized DUIs should be a felony. Meanwhile, this guy skates.

How many times does it take before a DUI is a felony? I'm not saying a first time offender who blows just over the limit should be charged but on the third offense and forward it should be a felony and they should lose their license for life.
