According to the Boulder Daily Camera, a man who has been accused of DUI in a crash that resulted in a pregnant woman losing her baby has been charged with multiple DUI offenses in the past. People familiar with the case have used it to call into question the way that DUI is enforced, and the penalties that people receive for DUI. In this case, the man left the scene of the crash and was picked up some distance away. This is his fifth DUI charge; the Boulder district attorney has said that he would like to see the more serious penalties for repeat DUI offenders than exist under the current laws.
