Life For DWI

Alcoholism is probably the hardest drug addiction to quit. The alcoholic is surrounded by a culture, which not only imbibes, but considers the consumption of alcohol an integral part of many of our social events.

However – there are some folks who take drinking and bad judgement to an extreme.

Needless to say, this guy won’t be drinking a drop of alcohol, for a very, very long time.

Mr Middleton will not have to worry about what to wear for a very long time.

 

Houston man, 56, gets life in prison for 9th DWI conviction

A 56-year-old Houston man has been sentenced to life in prison following his ninth drunken driving conviction since 1980.

Donald Middleton was sentenced Tuesday in Conroe. A Montgomery County judge decided that Middleton was a habitual offender.

Middleton last week pleaded guilty to the latest DWI charge linked to a May 2015 traffic accident. Investigators say Middleton was arrested after he fled on foot after the wreck, ran to a store and begged the clerks not to turn him in.

Prosecutors say Middleton previously served four prison terms for his alcohol-related convictions.

Former “Cop of the Year” Gets Life For Child Predation

“Blue Lives Matter”? How about children? I imagine this guy got away with a lot of crimes because he was a cop. Police are not immune to any of the foibles of the human condition – including the most evil and dastardly. Which is why there needs to be a fair and open system of accountability.

Michael Harding (l) receiving “Officer of the Year”.

Former Fla. “Officer of the Year” sentenced in child porn case

A former police officer who in 2011 was the “Officer of the Year” in his department was sentenced Monday to life in prison for producing and distributing child pornography, reports CBS Miami.

Michael Harding pleaded guilty in February to three counts of possession and distribution of material involving sexual exploitation of minors, attempting to coerce and enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity and production of child pornography.

Harding, who won the “Officer of the Year” award for his work as a Port St. Lucie Police Department officer, posted pictures and videos to a chat room depicting children engaging in sexually explicit acts on multiple occasions in 2015, according to court documents.

On Sept. 22, homeland security agents executed a federal search warrant at Harding’s home and seized his computer, cell phone and a thumb drive. An analysis found they contained hundreds of pictures and videos of children engaged in sex acts with adults.

Harding, 28, also attempted to coerce and entice a minor to engage in sexual activity over the internet. Chat messages stored on his phone show a conversation he had with another person in which both people claimed to have custody of children who they would trade for sexual activity, documents say.

According to court records, Harding used his cellphone to shoot a video depicting his sexual contact with a child under the age of 12. Chat messages also located on the phone corroborated that the image on the phone depicted the abuse of the minor child.

Jordan Davis’ Murderer Sentenced to Life Without Parole

At last!

 

Michael Dunn sentenced to life without parole for killing of Florida teenager

The man convicted of shooting dead a Florida teenager in a dispute over loud rap music has been given the maximum possible sentence of life in prison without parole plus 90 years.

Michael Dunn’s sentence was handed down after Lucia McBath, mother of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, broke down in the courtroom on Friday, telling her son’s killer through tears that she forgave him.

Dunn, who was convicted of murder earlier this month, sat impassively as McBath spoke of the devastation she felt at losing her only child in the November 2012 shooting at a Jacksonville gas station.

“For years to come I will be forced to celebrate my son’s birthday without his presence. As I quietly watch my friends’ boys grow into young men, I will forever be reminded of what might’ve been for my Jordan,” she said.

“I choose to forgive you Mr Dunn for taking my son’s life. I choose to release the seeds of bitterness and anger and honour my son’s love. I choose to walk in the freedom of knowing God’s justice has been served. I pray that God has mercy on your soul.”

Judge Russell Healey sentenced software engineer Dunn, 47, to maximum prison terms on all counts: life without parole for the first-degree murder of Davis, three consecutive 30-year sentences for the attempted second-degree murder of the teenager’s friends, who were in the car with him, and an additional 15 years for shooting into a moving vehicle.

“Mr Dunn, your life is effectively over,” Healey said. “This tragedy should and could have been prevented.”
