The OCREGISTER has dug deep into the arrest history of Austin Jeffrey Farley:

According to court records, Farley was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on May 4, 2004.    Being a 19-year-old driver at the time, he was charged with being a minor with a blood-alcohol-content of .05 percent or more. That charge was dismissed in June 2004 after he was sentenced to a diversion program.

In July 2004, Farley was back in court, charged with having a license suspended after allegedly refusing to submit to a chemical test. Farley pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to three years probation and $300 in fines.

In February 2009, he was pulled over by authorities again. He was charged with driving under the influence, disobeying a court order, battery on a peace officer and driving with a suspended license. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to three years of probation, 104 hours of service in lieu of fines, 30 days in jail, six months in a first-offender alcohol program, and to attend a victim’s panel for Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

So essentially three DUI related events (watered down to other charges in a couple of the cases) leading up to this one???   This is ridiclous!   A 14-year-0ld girl is brain dead after his latest get hammered and get behind the wheel actions.       Clearly he had drinking problems as a teenager and it kept building til his destructive life took a little girl away from her family.

How do these people continue to drive?   Where’s his passenger?   Charge him for getting in the car with a drunk driver knowingly!     That passenger should have never let Farley drive.  It will be interesting to see his court appearance tomorrow!

 The TEENSAVERS team will continue to follow this case, as this tragedy has hit very close to home.
