One more for the road

You have got to be freakin' kidding me!!??

15 DWI convictions, license suspended 78 times and his maximum term can only be three years!!??

Even after he crashes into another vehicle while he is over three times the legal limit?

I guess he and the DA can go have a drink together after court.

NJ man on 15th drunken-driving offense: I'm guilty

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man whose driver's license has been suspended 78 times has pleaded guilty to his 15th drunken-driving offense.

Shaun Campbell of East Rutherford told a judge Tuesday that he had been drinking "quite a bit" of beer when he crashed his SUV head-on into a pickup in April. The truck's occupants, a man and his 4-year-old daughter, were not seriously hurt.

The 40-year-old Campbell's blood-alcohol level was .288 percent, more than triple the state's legal limit.

Authorities say Campbell's license has been suspended 78 times in 22 years. He still faces drunken-driving charges in two other New Jersey cities.

Prosecutors are seeking a maximum prison term of nearly three years at Campbell's sentencing in August. He will lose his license for at least 10 more years.
