WPRI: A Slatersville man entered a no-contest plea last week after he was charged with soliciting another person to start a motor vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock system. Such a system is connected to a vehicle in order to prevent a person who’s been drinking from driving it. Robert Freiberger, 48, pleaded no contest to the charge, North Smithfield police said in a statement Wednesday. Instead of blowing into the ignition interlock to prove he hadn’t been drinking, police said, he’d been getting his two children, both minors, to blow into the breathalyzer port so he could start the car after having been drinking. Freiberger was given a one-year suspended prison sentence, one year probation, and ordered to pay a fine of $500. According to the Rhode Island Judiciary’s website, Freiberger has been cited for traffic violations in the past, including driving on a suspended license, and driving on a suspended vehicle registration.
How the hell is it this easy to beat a court ordered breathalyzer? Seriously, what’s the point of even having them? You trust a drunk? These people have a “disease” that makes them do dubious things to get what they want. Obviously any drunk could just find a sober person, give them $5 and make them blow in it for them.
Oh, and good thing a Rhode Island judge gave him a suspended sentence. It’s not like he has multiple DUI’s or anything. I’m sure this responsible, law-abiding adult, who made his kids blow into a breathalyzer for him, won’t be tempted to do something like this again.
At least the judge was the only one pulling a “free my boi.” The only people defending him the comments were the hurt feelings patrol and the baby momma:
“They know their father has a serious problem but they love him nonetheless.”
So let me get this straight. They know their father is a drunk, but they blew into a breathalyzer anyway so that he could drive a car and potentially kill someone? Oh yea, the news station that reported this is the REAL problem here. Not an alcoholic father or a Mom that apparently raised her children to not be able to differentiate between right and wrong.
Newsflash – your kids are not victims. The only victims of drunk driving are people that are killed by drunk drivers. If he’d kill someone, they should be charged as accessories, since as you pointed out, they were fully aware of their father’s condition.
Oh, and one more thing, according to the Providence Journal, the reason he was arrested in the first place was because you snitched on him:
However, Freiberger’s ex-wife told police in May that he was bypassing the system by having their two teenage children blow into the device for him, said Capt. Stephen Riccitelli.
Yea, if they’re teenagers then they’re old enough to know this was wrong. And by going to the cops and having him arrested you took the risk that this would be reported by the media. Because it’s a pretty outrageous thing for a Dad to get his kids to do.
Try to ruin a man’s life? Oh yea, it’s their fault that this will follow him around, not his. Oh, and WPRI isn’t judging him. But we are. As we should. Dude is a mess and a danger to society.
You’re right Le – it is a form of public humiliation. Because public humiliation is by far the most effective way to deter shitty behavior. Maybe now he’ll actually do something to correct his “disease.” Until then he’ll be saving France if you need him.
