A no-nonsense judge from Florida recently shut a DUI scumbag down as she tried to plea for sympathy.
Drunk driver Marilyn Aguilera wrecked the life of a high school principal from Florida after she ran him over, leaving him an amputee.
During her court appearance, she tried to plead to Judge Diane Ward of the Miami-Dade Circuit Court that she deserved a second chance.
“Act like a grown up,” scolded Judge Diane Ward of the Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
According to the Daily Mail, Aguilera even arrived to the case several hours late.
“Marilyn Aguilera, 52, was set to accept a plea deal for four years in prison after she ran over Javier Perez, 44, in 2016 while drunk driving,” stated the Mail. “The vehicle pinned Perez, causing him to lose both his legs and leaving him wheelchair-bound.”
“In April 2016, Aguilera plowed her SUV into a West Miami-Dade baseball field, hitting Javier Perez while he coached his five-year-old son’s little-league championship game,” the newspaper continued. WPLG News reported that another man was also badly hurt in the same crash.
Aguilera seemed to show little remorse for the man she injured.
“It’s just, I’m more concerned about mom, who is wheelchair-bound as well,” sobbed the accused woman, according to The Daily Mail.
Conservative Tribune reports:
That comment drew a sharp rebuke from Judge Ward. “Well, it seems like there’s many people that are now wheelchair-bound.”
As a result of Aguilera’s self-centered and strange behavior in dealing with the court, the judge canceled a plea deal that had been offered to the suspect.
If that deal had remained in place, Aguilera would have pleaded guilty to several counts of driving while intoxicated, and would have received a sentence of four years in prison.
With the plea arrangement taken off the table by the judge, the woman could now face up to seven years in prison following a full trial.
While Aguilera has not yet been convicted, there is strong evidence against her. Authorities say she failed roadside sobriety tests, and police reportedly found an open beer can next to her in the vehicle.
She deserves whatever punishment she gets. Share this story on social media if you support strict punishments for DUIs.
