Virginia: Lawyer Mark Sgarlata pleaded guilty to killing Patrick and Leia Wrenn in DUI crash

A deputy at the scene wrote in the arrest records, “Sgarlata had slurred speech with a heavy odor of alcohol coming from his breath. Sgarlata was unsteady on his feet and was found with his pants unbuckled and shirt unbuttoned. Mr. Sgarlata admitted to drinking 5 glasses of wine before the crash.”

On Friday, as he pleaded guilty, he told the judge that was “the best way to put all this behind us.”

But that’s not so simple a task for the victims family.

“[I] just take it a day at a time, and just kind of see what they would want me to do,” said Leia Wrenn’s daughter Tonya Adkins outside the Leesburg courthouse Friday morning.

Apparently the Broward County Courthouse is the place to be if you want to get riggety riggety wrecked, son! This morning was Judge Lynn Rosenthal’s turn to see how the other half of her criminal courtroom lives when she gets booked at the Broward Main Jail. There are scant details of the accident so far, but everyone agrees that a sheriff’s vehicle was hit, and they’re blaming Judge Rosenthal, a Governor Scott appointee facing an electoral challenge this year from the happiest person in Florida today.

Texas: Rosemary Lehmberg to arresting officer: “I don’t care who you are but take these *$# damn handcuffs off me. Now! I mean like now! I am not drunk. I am not a criminal. I’m the *&$ damn district attorney!”

Lehmberg: “You better do something quick because I’m getting pissed off.”

Sgt. Wayne Vincent, president of the Austin Police Association says after seeing the videos he feels Lehmberg should resign.

“This is law enforcement leadership having very little respect for people enforcing the laws. It’s bad,” Vincent said
