Life for multiple DWIs?
Texas DAs seem to think its fine, and exchange advice how to procedurally achieve the sentence on the user forum on their website. In the case discussed, the defendant had been charged with DWI 11 times, says the prosecutor, and had two prior DWI convictions, but the punishments inflicted didn't stop the behavior. Would shaming have been more effective? UPDATE: Doc Berman rounds up more links on shaming.
