11th DWI Charge for St. Louis Area Man

Posted by Chris Kopecky on Aug 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

DWI Troubles

Wow!  A guy in St. Louis County is recently looking at DWI charges for at least the 11th time.  11th St. Louis DWI And these are just the ones we know about.  He is out on $100,000 bond which means they are somewhat concerned for the public safety and that he is a flight risk.  What do you do with a guy like that?  Clearly he is gone to jail at different points over the last few convictions but he still keeps reoffending.  I get that some people are alcoholics and that they just can't help themselves when it comes to being around alcohol but the part that I struggle with is why do they allow themselves to then turn around and get in a car again putting the public and themselves at risk.  We have plenty of clients that it takes a few times before learning that this isn't working; usually the long stint in prison around the 3rd or 4th DUI that becomes a felony does the trick.   It is much harder to have sympathy for the guy on his 11th time.  We all have issues and need help in different areas of our lives, we just need to make sure that we don't put others at risk for our weaknesses.
