RSS icon Comments on Velazquez Seeks to Further Delay DUI Trial


She's ridiculous. I am so glad her stupid actions during the campaign and refusal to own up to her mistakes saved us from having this loser on our city council.

Sounds like she's pulling a Larry Craig: "I am not a drunk, I never have been a drunk."

In most cases, a defendant should Delay, delay, delay...

She lost the race. She's not a public figure right now. Leave her alone.

Also known as the R. Kelly defense.

Maybe she should have been elected. She's acting like an incumbent. Well, at least she's acting like Jane Hague.

Six shooter, but it's likely she may be a candidate or be in the public spotlight in the future. And just because she lost doesn't mean all of the sudden she's some anonymous bystander.

Leave her alone. She's attempting the best defense she's got, and we'd be crazy for not doing the same if we were ever in trouble with the law.

@8: Giving the best defense you've got, when you know that you've got jack, is unethical. That's not something anybody should be applauding.

Some call it obfuscation and delay; I call it fully availing yourself of your legal protections.

Besides, I say it's just a matter of time before Harrell blows a 0.12 on his way home one night.

Oh come on, it's not like they found all DUI cases back then suffered from improper testing and inaccurate measurements.

Oh. Wait. They did.

Especially for women who weren't about 5'10".
