Accidents can happen, but repeated and egregious acts of negligence should be dealt with aggressively by the criminal justice system to prevent future accidents and injury. In a recent Massachusetts case, a man whose license was permanently revoked was arrested for drunk driving for the 6th time. He is currently being held without bail and is awaiting charges in the Hingham District Court.
In this case, officers spotted the man driving an unfamiliar vehicle after he had already been convicted of multiple drunk-driving accidents. The 61-year-old driver is being held under Massachusetts "dangerousness law" and will face a hearing to determine the charges he will face.
