â€œNobody in their right mind would do this over and over again,â€ Collins told Bucks County Judge Jeffrey Finley in the Doylestown courtroom. â€œBottom line is, whatever sentence you give me Iâ€™m going to accept it like a gentleman.
believed Collinsâ€™ remorse was sincere, but said he
needed to lock him up to protect the public.
â€œThere comes a time, for the communityâ€™s safety, that a person must be removed from society,â€ Finley told him. â€œI believe you struggle with addiction.
But Iâ€™m not talking about the drinking.
Iâ€™m talking about the fact that you canâ€™t stay away from vehicles ... clearly, it was illegal for you to get behind the wheel, but you continued to drive.â€
In addition to prison time, Finley
ordered Collins to serve three years of probation and pay $7,500 in fines.
said that there comes a time when all you can do is protect the community, and I absolutely agree with that.â€
