Man receives time in custody for eighth drunk driving offense

A 48-year-old man was convicted of his eighth DWI charge in Wicomico County on Feb. 4. Because of his history as a repeat offender, he received an extra three years in prison and was sentenced to the maximum term allowed according to Maryland law for repeat offenders. However, the court suspended all but one year. The defendant's sixth and seventh convictions occurred less than seven days apart in Oct. 2012. He will serve back-to-back sentences for these three cases in which he incurred DUI charges. He was sentenced to two years and three years, respectively, which means he will need to serve a total of eight years in custody, four of them in the department of corrections. Six of the convictions have been in Wicomico County while his two other convictions were in Worcester County.

Driver in fatal accident facing multiple DWI charges

The 24-year-old man who allegedly caused a fatal two-vehicle accident has been charged with two DWI charges. The accident took place in Kingsville, Maryland. According to reports, the young driver's Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Mazda Protege. The driver of the Mazda sustained serious injuries because of the crash. His passenger was thrown from the vehicle and was transported to Franklin Square Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt. Both drivers, who were reported to be in stable condition after the accident, were emergency airlifted to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. While the driver of the pickup truck has been charged with driving under the influence, a spokesperson for the Baltimore County Police Department said that charges were not related to either illicit drug use or alcohol.

When someone is involved in an accident, one of the first things that Maryland police will consider is whether the driver has been drinking and driving. Employing a field sobriety test can offer the police a possible insight into the state of mind of the driver.
