Delaware DUI Class Could Have Kept Man Out of Pokey

by: Mike Miller

Everyone deserves a second chance. If a person is arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) I certainly subscribe to the theory that with a good alcohol class and some counseling, combined with a commitment to stay sober, a person belongs back behind the wheel.

A second DUI, in my opinion, should result in a driver becoming a permanent pedestrian. The case of a Delaware man getting hit with his fifth DUI offense is certainly criminal. As reported in

A man from New Castle was arrested for his fifth DUI offense after a hit and run collision. It is only a matter of time before this guy kills himself or someone else.

Stephen Callahan was charged with a fifth offense felony driving under the influence of alcohol, driving on a suspended license, leaving the scene of an accident and other related traffic offenses.

It would be nice if there was some medication that could be mandated for this 49-year-old chronic alcoholic and DUI offender that would make his body reject alcohol. I would like to think that a comprehensive alcohol awareness class as well as inpatient treatment might get Callahan sober, but at this point I think he needs to spend some time in jail.
