Repeat DUI Offenders can Have it Worse, Says a Raleigh DUI Attorney
Nine years ago, 18-year-old Christopher John Palmeri was found to have been under the influence of alcohol when he crashed and killed a Wakefield High School student. He then pled guilty for manslaughter and was sentenced to five months in jail, five years on probation, and 300 hours in community service. After the sentence was handed down Palmeri swore to turn his life around. Unfortunately, that was not the last of Palmeri’s misdeeds. Two years later, he was arrested after being accused of stealing three cases of Bud Light from a store. In 2013, Palmeri was also charged with violating his parole after testing positive for opiates and marijuana. Recently, Palmeri crashed his car and was arrested again for Palmeri driving while impaired (DWI), possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
