Williams, Jr., sentenced Ludwig to five years probation, suspended to three years probation. Ludwig must also serve 500 hours of community service.”

Thanks for the update. Guess money really talks and BS walks.

This would not work for the majority of people driving under the influence.

To be clear, drugs and alcohol were not involved. Excessive spped caused the accident.

Local people I’ve talked with believe “money changed hands” in the sentence.
