Five-time DUI offender gets treatment, probation

For his fifth local conviction for drunken driving, a 47-year-old Nevada County man has been sentenced to a treatment program and probation, incensing some law enforcement officers who say repeat DUI offenders should go to prison.

“I’ve seen some people with two DUIs, but not a lot of people with three or four and five,” Grass Valley Police Capt. Dave Remillard said today. “Rarely have I seen them in my career, but I know they’re out there, and I think its a travesty. It’s only a matter of time before this guy kills someone.”

Nevada County Superior Court Judge Robert Tamietti sentenced five-time DUI offender Mark Renee DelCarlo last month to five years of probation and a year at inpatient treatment program Redwood Gospel Mission in Santa Rosa, where he now resides.
