I knew a girl in high school that received a DUI according to the DUI laws in our state, and what was worse was that two people were killed.
This wasn't a open and shut story; however, the story was that she was drinking all night and was responsible and stayed the night at the party and drove home in the morning.
The thought was that it was still too early for her to drive, and she was convicted of vehicular manslaughter. He vehicular manslaughter punishment was a little jail time, a year or two of house arrest, and then probation following that.
From what I have been told of the situation following all of the punishment, was that the worst punishment of them all still remains - having to live with knowing that drunk or not, her driving killed two people.
