In one of the most egregious examples of weak prosecutors and liberal out-of-touch judges, a Delaware man was sentenced to jail for eighteen months for killing Maryland woman as he drove while intoxicated. The sentence Garrett M. Cordrey received was about the same sentence as a person charged with a misdemeanor theft rap.
Texas: Judge Gisela Triana busted for DWI after boozing it up with other lawyers and Judges; too cheap to call a cab!

SAN ANTONIO — A DWI case against a South Texas appeals judge who failed a field sobriety test in July was dismissed last month, the McAllen Monitor reported Wednesday.
Nora Longoria, a 13th Court of Appeals judge, was pulled over last July while going 69 mph in a 55 mph zone in the Rio Grande Valley city. Longoria, who failed a field sobriety test but refused a Breathalyzer, showed an officer her judicial badge and asked him to let her go home, the Express-News reported after the July arrest.
But Sharp was charged in May only with driving while intoxicated and was allowed last month to plead guilty to a lesser charge — driving while ability impaired, a noncriminal violation.
He was fined $340 and paid a $260 surcharge. His license was suspended for 90 days, but he was allowed to get a conditional license so he could travel back and forth to work. He had to listen to a victims impact panel.
We hope Sharp did listen and learn from the stories of lives lost and ruined.
We hope he did not take to heart the more obvious lesson of his case: that his family connections allowed him to walk away from a serious crime with a minor punishment.
Sharp’s sentence should have been proportionate to the seriousness of the offense, and it wasn’t.
He should have been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and felony vehicular assault. Then, if he had been allowed to plead, he could have pleaded down to no less than driving while intoxicated, and would have faced more severe penalties, including losing his license for six months.
Sharp could have learned a different lesson: that he was going to be held responsible for his actions, despite his family ties. That would have discouraged him from further recklessness.
