Description

About 200 people died in alcohol-related traffic accidents in Kentucky in 1999. An investigation by the Herald-Leader reveals that many of the DUI defendants have their charges dismissed or amended simply because judges and prosecutors are not following a state law. "Nearly one out of every five DUI cases in Kentucky is dismissed or amended down to a lesser charge... there are many reasons for the dismissing or amending charges... in many cases, judges and prosecutors have simply gone easy on DUI defendants."
