A strip-club patron who was so intoxicated he drove into two men, causing them to lose three legs between them, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence causing injury. One victim's legs were severed at the scene, authorities said. One of the other guy's legs was crushed and had to be amputated at the hospital.
The crime was reported after the club closed: Terrence Conrad Meeks, 40, was arrested by cops around 3 a.m. at Sam's Hofbrau downtown. Meeks rammed his older-model BMW into the victims, pinning them against a parked Mini Cooper in the club's parking lot. Meeks entered a guilty plea as part of a deal.
Prosecutors said Meeks will see more than five years behind bars as part of that bargain, which had them dropping their pursuit of a charge of driving under the influence with .08 percent blood alcohol causing injury. Meeks will have to deal with a separate restitution hearing in order to compensate the victims.
If you, or someone you know has been charged with a Driving Under the Influence, any other type of crime, it is essential to consult with a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who can aggressively fight the charges against you.
