Father who used child as designated driver gets probation

Posted on February 23rd, 2012 No Comments

The 39 year-old father, who made headlines last year after allowing his nine year-old daughter to drive the family mini van because he was too drunk to drive, has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Last October,  Detroit-area gas station security cameras caught his daughter driving the van up to a gas pump. Her father got out and allegedly bragged to the people inside that his daughter was a good driver and even called her his designated driver.

The man admits to struggling with alcoholism and says he has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He pleaded guilty to charges of second-degree child endangerment and allowing a minor to operate a motor vehicle.

Posted on February 16th, 2012 No Comments

The Houston millionaire who made headlines nationwide after he adopted his girlfriend for financial protection is being challenged by his teenage children.

The man is facing criminal charges of drunk driving and killing a 23 year-old man in Florida two years ago. He is being sued for wrongful death by the deceased’s family and, if he loses, he could be dealt a major financial blow. His 42 year-old girlfriend, legally considered his daughter as of October, is now entitled to his biological children’s $300+ million trust fund.

The children are challenging the adoption, claiming their father never told the judge he was being sued.

If you or a loved one has questions about the adoption process, contact the adoption lawyers of Garg & Associates by calling 281-362-2865 today.

Two Dynamo players arrested outside of Houston bar

Posted on February 9th, 2012 No Comments

Two Houston Dynamo players, backup goalie Tyler Deric and recently drafted Warren Creavalle, were arrested early Sunday morning outside of Roosevelt Lounge.

The 23 year-old Deric has been charged with felony assault on a public servant after, according to his attorney, they were denied entrance into the bar because his teammates were African American. The Houston Police Department claims that Deric slammed an off-duty police officer, who was working security, to the ground causing serious injury.

Creavalle was charged with misdemeanor interference. Both players made bail and are in California with the rest of the Dynamo team.
