Double DWI Case Nets More Charges

Troopers say more charges are stemming from the July 5th arrest and re-arrest of one man for DWI, but this time a different person is in trouble with the law.

Trooper Bryant Kirk says between Joseph Stancil's two DWI charges on July 5th, he was signed and bonded out of jail by a friend, Juan Luis McCauley. After being out of jail for the first DWI, Stancil was nabbed again in the same county within four hours for the same crime.

Now the investigating Trooper has issued a warrant for McCauley, charging him with aiding and abetting a DWI. That charge is a misdemeanor.

"A DWI is a serious enough charge, putting people's lives in danger, not to mention the driver," said Trooper Kirk. "But to enable someone to go and do it again, that person shoulders some responsibility for what could happen on the roadway by putting a DWI drive back behind the wheel."

The 26-year-old Stancil, of Princeton in Wayne County, was charged with two DWIs and resisting a public officer by troopers. His first charge came at 1:30 in the morning. Troopers say before 6AM, Stancil was bailed out and wrecked his pick-up truck, adding a second DWI charge within the same morning. Deputies have charged the man with simple possession of Schedule II controlled substance, possession of Schedule IV controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
