|Am I reading this correctly? |
The plea agreement calls for Furniss, 61, to plead guilty to count 2, operating a vehicle with an alcohol concentrated equivalent of .15 or more, as a Class A misdemeanor.
Then-According to the agreement, the offer is dependent upon the defendant having no criminal record. The state will agree to dismiss charges of operating while intoxicated and speeding.
Are you saying that he will have no criminal record? Or is the wording such that these are two difference crimes? I must be slow, I don't get it.

He was charged with 3 charges actuall;,they are:
Furniss was charged Monday with (1)operating a vehicle while intoxicated, (2)operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of at least .15 percent, and (3)exceeding the maximum speed limit.
in the plea they will drop the (1)operating while intoxicated and (3) exceeding the maximum speed limit.
He'll still be charged with (2)operating a vehicle with a blood alchol content of at least .15%
his punishment will be:
Furniss would be sentenced to one year in jail suspended, except for six days, under the agreement. He would pay fines and court fees of $365.
The superintendent would be on probation for nine months with terms to be determined by the court, if the agreement is accepted by the judge. His driverís license will be suspended for 90 days retroactive to the date of the incident or 180 days restricted.
It's confusing how it's all done, one charge sounds just like the other, but there is a difference.

|I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw. |
Thanks, Wilbur. I appreciate your help on this one. So, the second charge is more note worthy because of the excess above the limit, right? I think I get it.
Tell the monkeys hi and I am still willing to bring over the cigars.

|On winding Blue Bluff Road traveling 61 mph in a 35 mph zone ( just looking for a car full of teenagers to kill) His blood alcohol content to be .16 percent. Twice the legal limit while in school property.|
A 61 year old leader of children.
First the prosecutor needs to be put our of office for refusing to do his job.
If Mr. Furness doesn't do the right thing b stepping down and continues to be the influence of every future dead teenager in our community then I would certainly hope that everyone would call him at home and at his office and demand him to resign. The same should be done to the school board if they don't fire him.
His home number will be available upon request if that becomes neccesary.
I like him and I think he will do the honorable thing. Especially since they let him off the hook. .16 was the truth and carries more criminal penalties Im told..
