That driver from Winthrop deserves to be tried for and charged with negligent homicide, as well as OUI. Here's hoping that he gets his drivers' license pulled for awhile, and ends up serving a term behind bars. It would serve him right.

He should be charged with murder.

Driving drunk is intent to kill. Just like firing a gun into a crowd would be intent to kill.

i say 5 years jail for each life he took and a lifetime driving ban.

.... permanently annulled. Plus major prison time.
This menace should never be allowed behind the wheel a motor vehicle ever again.
If sentences like this were issued, you can be sure drunk driving would not be so prevalent.
