Austin Man Sentenced for DUI
Gerald Meyers , 49 of Austin has been sentenced to spend 30 days to six months in jail, pay a $750 fine, and to perform 25 hours community service after being found guilty of DUI in a jury trial. Meyers was arrested after being involved in a vehicle crash at Galeotti’s Bar in Austin on February 26, 2008.

Identity Theft Legislation Approved in State House
Legislation that would require convicted offenders to provide restitution to identity theft victims unanimously passed the House today, announced Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford), the bill's author and prime sponsor a former identity theft victim, himself. House Bill 222 allows an identity theft victim to receive restitution from their convicted perpetrator for expenses relating to investigating the theft, bringing or defending any civil or criminal action, or to making any other efforts to correct a victim's credit rating or report. The types of fees recoverable include, but are not limited to, fees for attorneys or accountants, fees and costs incurred in disputing or correcting credit records or reports, and court costs. Identity theft is now the fastest growing white-collar crime in America and occurs every four seconds costing billions of dollars per year according to Baker. noted that with the increased use of the Internet and e-mail, identity theft continues to become more prevalent and scam artists continue to become smarter in their solicitation of the personal information needed to commit their crimes. The more vigilant consumers are in checking their credit reports and the more guarded they are in to whom they release personal information, the harder it is for these criminals to operate. House Bill 222 now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

His time is longer that the other that also got a DUI at the same time. maybe this fella should have plead guilty. I ask myself why would he have taken this to a trial. Do you realize what he cost us by having a trial. The jury got paid, police, DA, His Lawyer, stenogrofer, judge, Witnesses, etc. Did you see what his blood was. That should have been guilt enough...

30 days for a 2 time offender what a slap in the face. I guess we should all sit back and wait till someone is killed by his drunk driving cause I can guarantee he will be back on the road drunk in no time. He has been caught twice now cause of an accident. That doesn’t mention the other 5 million times he has been on the road drunk and not caught. I hope there is a 3 strike rule cause mark my words there will be a 3rd strike.
