Just saw this on the examiner website. Should drunk drivers go to jail?
McDowell: Judge’s plan to jail drink drivers is unlawful
The Minister for Justice Michael McDowell has spoken out against a proposal by a District Court judge to jail all drink drivers for seven days on remand.
Minister McDowell has said that Judge John Neilan's plan is unlawful.
The judge raised controversy yesterday at Tullamore District Court, when he said he intends to start jailing drink drivers from December, while deciding their penalty.
