All drivers in New Jersey have a responsibility to avoid drunk driving, but sometimes, after a driver’s judgment becomes impaired after drinking, driving under the influence of alcohol is difficult to avoid. Although it is likely that most drivers who cause fatal DUI accidents feel remorse for their actions, they typically keep those feelings private.
When an Ohio man’s drunk driving caused the death of another man, he expressed his guilt and remorse to the world through a video on YouTube. Despite his remorse, the man was sentenced to 6 and a half years in prison. In addition to the prison sentence, the man will also pay a fine of more than $1,000. Even after he serves the prison sentence, he will not be allowed to drive, making it unlikely that he will be able to commit a DWI second offense.
