"Sick and tired of drunk drivers. The penalties are too lenient for these low lifes who have no regard for other peoples safety or lives."

Well her penalties were light, because they weren't for DUI. Actually DUI is severely over punished in many situations. I certainly wouldn't call them lenient, in CA it'll cost you upwards of $10k, loss of license, huge repercussions on insurance, DUI class, jail time. I'd say some people earn that and then some, but you can get popped sitting in your driveway listening to music in your car, can get it riding a bike drunk, etc. Crime is obviously different, but the penalties aren't.

what?
i got a similar deal here in l.a. except i have to do a 9month program because my bac level was so high. 3 year probation also .

not sure how much she spent on a lawyer but i pretty much got the same thing with a free public defender.
