Repeat DUI Offender Charged With Felony Injury To Child

mark dayMark Jason Day, a repeat DUI offender, was arrested for DUI and charged with felony injury to a child on May 18, 2013. The incident occurred in Ada County early Saturday afternoon when police pulled the repeat DUI offender over during a routine traffic violation. Upon interrogating Day, the arresting officer noticed that he displayed symptoms of alcohol intoxication and conducted several field sobriety tests. After failing the sobriety tests, the officer placed Day under arrest and transferred him to the Ada County Jail.

Police later found that Day had a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .23%, which is nearly triple the legal limit of .08%. Since Day is a repeat DUI offender and has 3 prior DUI convictions, his latest charge is a felony. Day also had his child in the vehicle with him at the time of the arrest and since his child is under the age of 10 years old, Day was charged with injury to a child as well. If Day is convicted for the felony DUI charge, he could face up to five years in prison. Day could also face one to ten years in prison if convicted for injury to a child.
