Police in Glen Falls, NY say that three people ordered to attend a DWI victims panel showed up at the meeting drunk. The three were defendants convicted of driving while intoxicated in New York who were required to hear stories from those who had lost someone to a drunk driver.
One of the panel members, who had lost both a father and grandmother to drunken drivers, said that occasionally someone will show up drunk but three intoxicated defendants was offensive. Stating they apparently were not ready to learn the lessons of drunk driving in NY, the panel member hoped the judge would lock the three up.
Each of the three defendants registered a blood-alcohol content just below 0.22%. The legal limit for intoxication in New York is .08%. Police request breath tests from those suspected of being intoxicated, before they join the victims group.
