[font=Georgia]10th DUI conviction brings prison term[/font]
Omaha World Herald wrote:Fleeing police at 60 mph, a drunken Russell S. McCormick veered off a residential street in April and into the southeast Omaha police precinct parking lot. There, he got out of his 1990 Ford Aerostar minivan and assumed a fighting posture. Officers swarmed him. A preliminary test showed his blood-alcohol content was .16 — twice the legal limit. At the time of his arrest, McCormick's license had been suspended in both states: in Nebraska since 1995 and in Iowa since 2002. McCormick's attorney, William Pfeffer, said his client suffers from two diseases: diabetes and alcoholism. He called his client a hard worker and a nice guy. In McCormick's case, with credit for eight months he has already served in jail, the Council Bluffs man will be eligible for parole in about seven months and probably will be released in about two years.
