Bottle blond, literally.
When a person gets a DWI, most assume it serves as a lesson that perhaps he should not drink and drive. A second DWI might suggest this person should consider counseling for an alcohol addiction. But, when a man gets 16 DWIs, that man goes to prison.

Such is the case for Conroe resident James Steven Corley, who was sentenced to 99 years in prison on Wednesday for the third-degree felony charge of driving while intoxicated, third or more. This was Corley's 16th such conviction.

The 52-year-old was pulled over August 28 for a broken taillight and for weaving in and out of traffic by a Montgomery County Sheriff's deputy, who, believing Corley was intoxicated, called for backup. A second deputy performed a field sobriety test, which Corley failed. His blood alcohol level was between .005 and .10; however, he also had prescription seizure medication in his system, greatly increasing the effect.

Compounding matters, Corley's arrest occurred during his attempt to flee from a burglary and assault of his girlfriend, according to testimony by one of the deputies.

Corley testified that he didn't think of potential victims when driving while intoxicated and prosecutors showed evidence that he has done nothing to curb his drinking-and-driving habit.

Take a lesson, kids. Don't drink and drive. You don't want to end up like James Corley -- and that includes his hair color, which we are calling jaundice yellow.

This is unbelievable that someone could have 16 DWIs before something is done.  My husband is serving 75 yrs for his 2nd and he didn't hurt anyone or anything except him and his car when he rolled it!!!  I think it's about time that Texas justice (?) is uniform.

Montgomery county and their DPS cronies know who the habitual offenders are they even cruise bar parking lots looking for the easy bust. Granted 16 convictions is a little out of hand, even where this booze hound dwells. But, in fairness to the guy the only reason I've beaten DWIcharges in Montgomery county is with excellant lawyers, and shoddy police work. I've found it alot less hassle and alot cheaper to party at home.

“His blood alcohol level was between .005 and .10…”

  That's an awfully broad range, on which to base any conviction based on the assumption that he was intoxicated.  I believe the standard, in most places, is 0.08%; the range stated here leaves a lot more room below that point than above.

Someone needs to print the names of the judges that let it get this far.

The claim is he was on meds, too. If I pop a handful of benedryl and drink some beer, it's still DUI even if I blow a .06.
