People v. Vela (Cal. Ct. App. - April 30, 2012)

It's the end of the month, so let's review.  Some very basic math.

Four prior DUIs + Driving with a .21 at 70 m.p.h. = Hitting a motorcycle and killing someone = 15 years to life in prison.

Rebecca Vela learns this lesson the hard way.  (Though not nearly as hard as the victim, Stanley Spaeth, learned it.  They pulled him out of a tree, dead.)
