Dear Paul B,
A terrible thing has happened to me. My wife will no longer let me take my son with me. We are married, but Brett can’t go in my car, ever, says my wife. There has to be a legal side to this and I want to see an attorney. I had a bad night when I was ticketed for a DUI, but I haven’t gone to court yet for this. I am fighting it, and I am being JUDGED by JUDY before any sentencing. This is wrong.
Dear Brett Sr.,
I am only hearing what you want to give me, so you’re NOT going to like it. Judy has every right to protect Brett Jr., because you apparently don’t care. You OBVIOUSLY feel that driving with just a “little bit of a buzz” is alright. Since you believe that taking Jr. in your car with you when you navigate a motor vehicle while DUI, you are totally whacked out! Judy must first protect Jr., and now You must prove to her that You HAVE a HUGE DRINKING PROBLEM, and that you are going to do something about it–NOW. You are in the process of losing your family, and perhaps your own life (amongst others when you DRINK and DRIVE.) DUI is the worst offense there is, because you put innocent drivers and passengers in your “cross-hairs.” I lost a client 4 years ago, when she was broad sided by one of YOUR PEOPLE, and she was 44 and the mother of 2. This particular moron (please excuse the comparison) hit her, killed her, and then left the scene to injure a pedestrian 5 blocks away. DUI is comparable to a “Terrorist on Wheels.” Grow up, get some help, and good luck!
