Bringing Beer to Court Is Not a Smart Idea

One might think that after being charged with a DUI, a person would be on their best behavior. Apparently that is not the way it was for a Monticello N.Y. man with the initials K.G. This man was charged with a felony drunk driving charge, but on his court date he got himself into even more trouble.

K.G. showed up an hour and a half late, toting an open can of Busch beer into the court room. He was visibly drunk when he arrived. The criminal had four unopened cans of the beer in a cooler bag, which he attempted to bring inside. He was apprehended at the security check and the alcohol was confiscated.

A local news station said that the judge asked K.G. if he enjoyed his liquid lunch, to which he replied that he had, and then that he was sorry. Because of his display of drunkenness and flippancy towards his trial, the judge revoked his bail and sent K.G. back to jail. He was arrested on December 27, 2011 for driving under the influence, and has had prior DWI convictions which make this a serious offense.

He was out on a $30,000 cash bail at the time of his hearing, but is now back in incarceration awaiting his sentence. Because he is facing a subsequent offense, chances are that K.G. will end up in jail for at least a year. The court dismissed K.G.’s lawyer, because the man refused to cooperate with him. If you have been accused of a DWI, then you will want someone there to fight for you.

Also, you will want to make sure to practice proper court room etiquette while inside the building so that you do not worsen your punishment. If you choose a lawyer at Thomas & Paulk, P.A., we can walk you through your trial and help you to handle the pressure of a court appointment.
