From The Advocate:
Charles William Landrum, 50, now faces a term of 10 to 30 years in prison when state District Judge Mike Erwin sentences him March 16.
An East Baton Rouge Parish jury of seven women and five men deliberated less than 30 minutes before unanimously finding Landrum guilty.
Prosecutor Michelle Lacoste had told the jury he is someone “who has endangered our streets again and again and again.”
“This is serious,” she added. “DWIs affect everyone.”
Landrum had two prior DWI convictions in 1999 in Slidell, one in 2000 in St. Tammany Parish and another in 2007 in Caddo Parish.
He was still on probation for the 2007 conviction when he was arrested July 13, 2012, for DWI in East Baton Rouge Parish.
His blood-alcohol level was 0.124 percent about two hours after he was arrested. A reading of 0.08 percent is considered presumptive evidence of drunken driving in Louisiana.
Landrum testified Tuesday against the advice of his court-appointed attorney, Susan Hebert, that he had consumed several beers after work that day, then ate and went to sleep before leaving his Hooper Road house about 11:30 p.m. and driving to the Circle K at 13435 Hooper Road to buy gas and use an ATM there. ....MORE
