DWI HIT PARADE: 7-time DUI Driver Melissa Jurado Not Hurt in Crash; Delaware’s Looney Judges Will Get another Chance to Set Her Free to Kill
BRIDGEVILLE, DEL. Proving once again that the liberal yahoos of Delaware legislature and Judiciary don’t give a damn about public safety when it comes to repeat offender impaired drivers and instead of keeping them behind bars, allow them to be free to kill, another seven-time DUI driver has been bagged. Unfortunately, this driver survived a crash, and fortunately, she didn’t kill anyone – this time.
The Delaware State Police report they arrested 39-year-old Melissa Jurado for 7th Offense DUI after she was involved in a vehicle crash.
The incident occurred on August 22, 2020, at approximately 3:33 a.m., when Troopers were dispatched to northbound Sussex Highway at Antique Alley, Bridgeville, in reference to a collision. Upon arrival, Troopers searched the immediate area for a female who was reported standing by the suspect vehicle in the woods. Troopers located the female on the shoulder of Sussex Highway and identified her as Melissa Jurado, who is also the registered owner of the vehicle in the collision.
Through further investigations, Jurado was determined to be the operator. Troopers made contact with Jurado who showed signs of impairment and an odor of alcohol was detected. Subsequently a DUI investigation ensued.
A computer inquiry revealed that Jurado had been charged with six previous DUIs making this her 7th offense. She was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 5 where she was charged with the following:
- 7th Offense after 6 prior offenses – Driving a Vehicle under the Influence of Alcohol (Felony)
- Leaving the Scene of Property Collision Accident
- Driving While Suspended or Revoked
- Failure to Have Insurance Identification in Possession
- Failure to Have Registration Card in Possession
