Kiefer Sutherland has officially been charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI as a result of his arrest early Tuesday morning, when he was caught driving with a blood alcohol level that was almost twice the legal limit. Bad got badder for Keifer with the news that the judge hearing his case will be Judge Michael Sauer, the same judge who sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days for driving on a suspended license. Sutherland was already on probation for a 2004 DUI arrest. On that occasion, he had a staggering .22 blood alcohol level. .08 is the legal limit. People.com says:
The 24 star, 40, faces up to one year in county jail if convicted and a $1,000 fine, plus an additional six months if a judge deems he violated probation.Because of his previous DUI conviction, Sutherland faces a mandatory minimum sentence of four days in jail if convicted for this latest incident, which was his fourth DUI-related arrest.In 1989, he was arrested for DUI and carrying a concealed and loaded weapon. In a deal with prosecutors, he pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving, and the other charges were dropped.He was arrested for DUI again in 1993, and pleaded out the same way. He was given the option of serving 12 days in jail or performing 211 hours of community service, and opted for the latter.
Wow, if this judge gave Paris 45 days for driving on a suspended license, Sutherland is fucked. What he's done over the years is much much worse than what Paris did. The judge might just throw him in a damn volcano or at the very least sentence him to life on Monster Island.
