A repeat DWI offender was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday.
Bobby Joe Stovall, 52, was convicted in July 2010 of felony driving while intoxicated. Tuesday, Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield sentenced him to life in prison.
In early July 2009, Stovall crossed several lanes of traffic on East Palm Valley Boulevard in Round Rock without yielding. Another driver hit his truck, and his female passenger was taken to the hospital.
According to police, Stovall’s blood alcohol level of .32 and his passenger’s level was .38. The legal blood alcohol limit is .08.
Stovall had eight previous DWI convictions from several different counties.
Previously, he served time in prison for burglary and credit card abuse.
What's wrong with those people in Texas who support this kind of excess? Is there no other way? Considering what it's going to cost to keep him in prison for life, is there nothing else that can be done?
