Here you go Yougottobekidding, here is justice for you, because he is a protected witness/snitch he is ordered to go to a country club rehab, then do six months in a halfway house..how is that for a repeated DWI, Felon, who should of received a leandra's law sentence, gets off on a six month half way house sentence. Why is this happening? So he can get and keep a drivers license. Why are they waiting for him to take lives down with him? He is going to kill someone! He is a DRUNK!!! NO Rehab or halfway house is going to cure him!

Yougottobekidding, you are spot on. He is a state's witness/police informant and apparently when you are a snitch you have a free pass to commit felonies and other criminal activities thumbing your nose to the public that needs protection from alcoholics that get behind a wheel. The judges need to step up and protect the people this individual has placed in danger by his activities. Every time he gets behind a wheel he is risking the lives of all in his path. When does it end...till someone is dead and they still cover for him and protect him. These judges need to know what kind of sociopathic narcissist criminals they are giving protection to and instead protect the people he is harming. In the palms of his hands...unbelievable. Throw this criminal in jail and rot.

This man is still driving, and he considers it all a joke. he stated he has the judge and police in the palm of his hand. he said he will get off with a fine in which his mother will pay for him. and he is still drinking.

I don't have a dog in this fight, BUT how can anybody stop anybody from driving anything even though convicted for several DUI/DWI offences ?? short of being incarcerated until such time as it may be deemed to reinstate a license.

Ataxpayer- The problem is this is NOT about Mr. Sweet!! A child; HIS CHILD was almost killed violently in his first DWI on the record. A crash that could have been prevented.

This is another person’s negligence and causes strong emotions, especially anger. This has to stop. It is no longer Mr. Sweets right to commit attempted MURDER.

I sure hope people didn't get the wrong message and think I defend this repeat offender. If it was up to me first DWI - Done - no more driving for you!

Ataxpayer- As a neighbor and friend of one of the parties involved Mr.Sweet has been to mandated NA, AA, and St. Marys addiction treatments on several occasions; as well as voluntarily checking himself into rehabilitation at least 4 occasions over several years. It is my understanding he did this to avoid any pending or future charges as it looks good for the court system. When in rehab he continued to engage in criminal activity right on premise.

ATAXPAYER.....how many times does this habitual criminal need to seek help..and not be held accountable...how many times does he get to seek help for his "addiction"....is it part of his "addiction" to run from the scene, refuse breathalyzer...and do this on a yearly or bi yearly basis...it is never ending..but..as You said this is how the law works...till someone is dead..just a matter of time...for an addiction.

well as long as he seeks some type of "help" for his addiction, such as attending a victim impact class, he is allowed to return to the road [or in some cases school]. By no means do I agree how the system works..but unfortunately it is the sad reality. But when he returns to the road and hurts or kills someone, I do strongly feel that the judge who reinstates his driving privileges should be held 100% liable for any and all damages.

When is someone going to protect our roads from this guy. Everyone knows him and does nothing about it..Someone is going to get killed..then it is too late. The people that turned him in did the right thing and the State Police should be commended for taking him in, hopefully forever. If he wants to drink....he should never drive a vehicle ever again.

why is he still driving? Shouldn't THE FIRST accident in 2011 be a LEANDRA LAW?

I know this person well. Robert is a menace to society.Everyone in this town knows him well and is urging him to leave. He has been offered MANY opportunities to avoid a DUI/DWI charge. The drunk doesn’t listen to reason. The fines and penalties should be double if he or any intoxicated person get pulled over after being warned by everyone not to get behind the wheel in their condition; especially 24 hours prior to child visitation. Mr.Sweet was given carte blanche access by Montgomery County Family Court to pick up and drive his son around after knowledge and admittance of his drinking history and a prior accident in 2011; Mr. Sweet fled the scene putting his then 3 year old son not restrained in a car seat in the hospital.This man has gotten a literal "get out of jail free card", so the drunk deserves whatever he gets for refusing reason and chances; and trying to drive. Sheriffs please prevent DUIs and potential accidents and FATALITIES by taking his license away in
