A 32-year-old man was arrested this weekend for committing nearly the same crime in 1999 that left him imprisoned and without a driver’s license for several years. The suspect killed a 10-year-old girl in a crash more than a decade ago after driving drunk and was arrested this past weekend for driving while intoxicated again, New York Criminal Lawyers report.
“He hasn’t learned anything in all these years,” said a grieving 49-year old man, whose daughter was killed in the 1999 accident. According to police reports the man crashed into the family’s car in 1999 and only the 10-year-old girl was killed.
The suspect allegedly crashed onto the lawn of a local resident this past weekend and was found slumped over the steering wheel with the car still running and a half of a bottle of vodka sitting near him. He sustained only minor injuries at the scene according to police and required no hospitalization.
Neighbors alerted the police as soon as they saw the car on the lawn, according to NY Criminal Lawyers. Police immediately brought the suspect into custody where he was charged with driving while intoxicated once again. There were no family members available for comment about the history of the suspect in these cases.
The man was held on $50,000 for bail and spent several days in jail according to local authorities. Police were unavailable for comment, states New York Criminal Lawyers, but according to reports, it is likely the suspect will serve another prison term.
