Pocatello woman convicted for aggravated DUI sentenced to three years in prison
32 year old Emily Thomas of Pocatello has been sentenced by Sixth District Judge David C. Nye to a fixed three year prison term and three years undetermined for aggravated DUI, as reported by Idaho State Journal. However, the judge retained jurisdiction for one year, which could potentially allow Thomas to be set free in three months depending on how well her rehabilitation program progresses.
The sentence stems from a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 15 near the I-15/I-86 interchange in September 2014. According to Idaho State Police, Thomas struck a trailer driven by 43 year old Daniel Leavitt, following which both vehicles hit the median. Levavitt and one of his two sons who were in the trailer sustained injuries while Thomas, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, was ejected after the vehicle rolled over.
Sorry Emily, society owes you nothing
Leavitt suffered broken bones and a concussion while his 12 year old son who was injured in the crash told the court the seatbelt crushed his chest while he also lost a portion of his finger. Boise ID DUI lawyers are not too impressed with this type of behavior.
The prosecution alleges that Thomas did not stop drinking despite being in a substance abuse program. Thomas’ DUI attorney said his client understood the seriousness of the crime. She personally claims to be on the road to recovery and feels guilty for the crime. But what does her word mean?
