“The vast majority of first DUIs are people who make stupid mistakes. Turning them into criminals doesn’t make any sense. A good number of them are going to get off because an officer doesn’t show, and evidence falls apart. What happens to those people? They’re not on the radar, and they’re not going to get treatment,” Hersh said
The program is bound to be bad for business for attorneys who concentrate in DUI defense as Mr. Hersch does. Maybe he knows something about his pending application to be nominated to the Circuit Court that we don't?
Mr. Hersch, along with Judge White-Labora and attorney Michael Hanzman all have their applications before the Governor for the late Judge Skip Gross's seat.
Meanwhile, MADD is against the program as it does not mandate a five year prison sentence for anyone who thinks of a beer while driving.
There's always Broward.
See you in court.
