A drunken driving related incident that took place in January of 2013 has attracted criticism towards a Scioto County Judge by the Ohio State Supreme Court, as per a Times Journal report.
In the actual incident, a 58-year old man identified as William T. Marshall (Scioto County Common Pleas Court Judge) did not wish to contest his first degree misdemeanor charge of first offense DUI. He pleaded guilty after his car, a 2005 Toyota Prius crashed on Interstate 140 in Jackson County.
As per reports compiled by the OSHP (Ohio State Highway Patrol), the drunken driver lost control of his Prius which veered off the right side of the highway and toppled after colliding with a raised portion of the surface.
When arresting officers subjected Marshall to a breathalyzer test, his blood alcohol content registered at 0.222%. According to Troy, Ohio DUI attorneys, this is almost three times the legal limit to drive in the state, which is 0.08%.
As a result of his guilty Plea, Marshall was punished with a 90 day prison term and a fine of $550 while he also had to bear legal expenses.
Alleged drunken driver jailed for disorderly conduct
According to the Norwalk Reflector, 24-year old Ruben Bravo was driving headed westwards on East League Street when he lost directional control of his car and hit a sign post and tree lawn. Bravo then quickly fled the crash site but was apprehended several hours later at 23 Grand Avenue. Officers who tracked him down subjected Bravo to a blood alcohol content test. It was established that his blood alcohol content was more than double that of the state’s legal driving limit and this was after being tested hours after the crash happened.
Bravo landed himself in jail when calls came in about an undetailed incident at his residence. Officers who were dispatched in response to the call discovered that Bravo was in fact the person who had hit the sign post and driven away.
