Sometimes people who have been convicted of a previous crime often carry that crime with them for the rest of their lives. In many instances people assume certain things about people with a criminal record. However, just because someone makes a mistake in the past, that does not make him or her a criminal for life. Additionally, just because someone is charged with another crime that does not mean he or she is guilty.

A 20-year-old man, who was convicted in an accident that left three people dead, about three years ago, was reportedly arrested recently for driving under the influence of alcohol. The latest charge comes after authorities say the man crashed his car into an onramp guardrail. According to reports, officers administered a field sobriety test, and then arrested the man. The arresting officer also claimed that the man would not submit to a breath test.

According to reports, alcohol did not play a role in the previous incident that left three people dead. In that instance, speed was the key factor. The man in question reportedly crashed the truck he was driving into a tree at high-speed, killing three of the passengers and injuring the other two. As part of his sentence in that case, the man was given two years probation and his license was also suspended until he reached the age of 21.

For this latest incident the man faces misdemeanor DUI charges, driving under suspension, falsification for allegedly giving his brother’s birthdate, failure to control, and consuming under the age of 21. While the evidence against this man appears to be damaging and the charges are serious, he is still entitled to certain rights.
