The Austin Statesman reports

“Bobby Joe Stovall (dob 8/26/57) was convicted on July 29, 2010, by a jury of felony driving while intoxicated. Stovall elected to have the judge assess the punishment. After hearing additional evidence, on August 10, 2010, Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield sentenced Stovall to life in prison.

On July 3, 2009, on East Palm Valley Boulevard in Round Rock, Stovall crossed several lanes of traffic in his truck without yielding to the traffic. Traffic in the area was heavy because of motorists leaving a Round Rock Express game at Dell Stadium. Stovall’s truck was hit by another vehicle. A female passenger in Stovall’s truck was injured and taken to the hospital. She had a blood alcohol level of .38.

Round Rock police determined that Stovall was intoxicated and had eight previous DWI convictions from Collin, Dewitt, Nueces, Galveston, Jackson and Goliad Counties. A blood sample was taken from Stovall. A subsequent test at the DPS Crime Laboratory showed that Stovall had a blood alcohol concentration of .32, four times the legal limit in Texas.

Stovall had also been previously convicted of burglary of a habitation in 1994 and credit card abuse in 1987. He had been sentenced to prison in both of those cases. He also had been convicted of possession of a controlled substance in 1994 and was placed on probation. He also had numerous convictions for theft, driving while license suspended and making alcohol available to a minor.

NOTE: This press release was updated to correct the year of Bobby Joe Stovall DWI arrest”

This guy has a lot of problems. Nobody is going to help this guy get out of prison unless there is something that they get into return The only thing you get is the potential 15 years of sobriety because you have to work with him for 15 years so he can make parole at 15 years.

And the odds of getting 15 years of sobriety is very slim. And the program tells us that we are going to any lengths in our program to help ensure that we do not take another drink. Is helping this guy getting parole will prevent you taking the first drink for 15 years? For somebody, it might be worth it if it prevents them for taking first drink.

However, I doubt that somebody is up for the task, because the task of sponsoring this guy is a thankless task.
