Re: I am disappointed in Texas justice...
Now for the opposite.
A friend of mine had gotten a 10 YEAR prison sentance on his second DUI because he had several open containers. After his first year, he was allowed out under the condition that he had full screening for Alcohol and Drugs. He had to do this for 9 years, and only failed the test once. That was less than a month before he was supposed to get off. He is now back in prison for the full 10 years for having a few beers. Not while driving mind you, just for failing the test when he was supposed to blow. His BAC.... twice the legal limit. That may sound like a lot, but its actually little more than a buzz. Not good to drive on, but again, he was not driving at that point.
How does your nephew get away with that crap, and my friend gets the full sentance??? Even if they do let him off in another couple of years that is still so much harsher.
