The rate of drunk driving is highest among 21-25 year olds (23.4%)
You can always tell the rookie DUIs as they tend to take the Breathalyzer test back at the station (the one that is admissible in Court) and then when the results clearly indicate impairment they usually opt for a standard 24D disposition, which is of course only available to first timer's.
Take Tyler Anderson, age 21, for instance:
In Eastern Hampshire District Court on Monday Mr. Anderson took the standard 24D plea deal and as a result loses his license for 45 days, pays $600 in fines/fees, takes a alcohol driver education program, and will be on probation for a year.
Kristin Hill, age 21, stands before Judge Payne
Kristin Hill had her case continued until December 1st as she thought a Public Defender would automatically be assigned to her. Considering she also too took the Breathalyzer (failing miserably) she should probably save herself the private attorney fee and go with the 24D disposition.
Busy weekend for all things alcohol:
