He thinks that he is above the law and can break it at will and be "Privileged from arrest"? He will never get a vote of mine ever again. Regardless of who's running against him.


He actually is- according to the constitutional ban. & It makes me sick! With lawmakers being "exempt" from arrest while the legislature is in session, I assume that means they can drink, drive, kill someones families, or children- and its ok? Because they are lawmakers?? NO! This is a stupid ban and it needs to be changed asap!!



Actually, according to the statues, one could argue that DUI falls under breach of the peace. And I expect the prosecutor in the case will argue that points.

It is nothing more than a political hit. Doctors, professors, law enforcement and so on get busted for DUI a lot and the charges just disappear.

WYMT has deleted over 50% of the comments to the most recent article. It's almost laughable when you scroll through them.

Last month, Smith

FRANKFORT, Ky (WYMT) - The attorney for Senator Brandon Smith entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Smith was in court to answer to a DUI charge.

Smith was arrested on January 6, the first day of the 2015 legislative session. Smith -- who represents the 30th District, which includes several counties in Eastern Kentucky -- was charged with DUI in Frankfort just miles away from the capitol building itself.

Last month, Smith's lawyer filed a motion to dismiss the charge based on an 1891 state law that prohibits lawmakers from being arrested for certain offenses while the legislature is in session. He later dropped that motion.

During Thursday morning's hearing, Smith's attorney told the court that he wants a jury trial for his client. The judge presiding over the case said that he will try to schedule that trial for April.

The judge did tell Smith that he had to give up his license until the issue is resolved because he refused a Breathalyzer at the time of his arrest. Smith's attorney says that he didn't refuse the Breathalyzer. Smith says that instead, he tried to call attorney first.

It was not clear at the end of this hearing when Smith would be back in court. :mrgreen:

What a dumb ass. If he would have plead guilty to begin with and asked for forgiveness it would have been a distant memory.
