At least five convictions? How many have fallen off the record? How many have been reduced to “wet reckless”? Dang, she has had a problem for a long time. There is no excuse as to why this woman should not have been behind bars when this occurred. 50 years for her, one big fat lawsuit against her.
“In 2nd degree murder, you act with reckless disregard for human life,” explained deputy district attorney Steve Somers, who reported Deborah King has at least five prior DUI convictions. “If you can establish that the person was aware that driving under the influence is dangerous, and that they were under the influence and, knowing the dangers involved, went driving anyway and killed someone, you can establish it was murder.”
The vehicular manslaughter charge stems from her allegedly reckless behavior, and King faces a sentence of 15 years to life for each count if convicted, Somers said.
