HOUSTON (FOX 26) - A man who served eight years behind bars for a deadly drunk driving crash is in trouble again.
Wesley Brown has been arrested with four DWI's. In one of those cases he killed a woman. Now, he's being held in prison after being arrested on Sunday.
Sean Teare of the Vehicular Crimes Division of the Harris County District Attorney's Office tells FOX 26, "That should be the ultimate wake up call. If you get a second chance after making that decision, and taking someone's life you should never do this again. And now he's done it twice."
Wesley Brown's rap sheet spans over two decades, and it appears there's no sign he'll change his ways. The repeat DWI offender stayed under the radar after serving eight years for killing a woman while driving drunk in 2004. It wasn't until May of this year when he turned up again, arrested for driving while intoxicated. He made bond, only to land in prison again on Sunday.
Cases like Brown's hits hard for volunteers of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, some of them victims themselves, or lost a loved one due to drunk driving.
"It's still a loss, you don't have that loved one anymore. Yet he gets to get out and he does it again, and again, and again, and it's unacceptable... He should never be able to get out as far as I'm concerned. I know the law says that you serve your time, but you know what, the person that was killed, where is their time?" says volunteer Jeanette Einkauf.
Teare tells us, "That's what our constitution says. I don't think you can attack it in this case, because the bonds were appropriate numbers. At the end of the day it's on this individual."
Teare says that both of Brown's DWI are pending together, and they plan on prosecuting him to the fullest extent of the law.
"This is now solely about the public's safety, and that's where we have to focus in the public, and the public is best served in this case, in my mind and I hope in a jury's mind eventually by putting this individual in prison for as long as we can," Tearne said.
Brown was able to bond out of jail following his arrest in May. His bond for the latest DWI is currently set at $50,000 since he poses a risk to the public.
