27 NEWSFIRST Investigates: Fayette County's Worst DUI Offenders

Richard Boger, 24, is a convicted DUI felony offender. He's been arrested 6 times in the past 3 years for driving under the influence. Still Boger says he'd rather drive home than catch a cab.

Boger is now on house arrest and will not get his license back until 2011. Boger says he may have made better decisions if the law were tougher on repeat offenders.

"It'd be a lot different, I could drive a lot more opportunities I could have taken advantage of easier to get along with," Boger says.

Boger also hopes his story goes a long way, in keeping others from becoming a "homebody" like he's become.

    So Richard Boger is saying that if the law was tougher he wouldnt be a repeat offender? Sounds like he is putting the blame for his drinking onto someone else. I will agree with him, the law does need to be tougher. But he needs to "grow" up and stop blaming someone else for his problems.

    He doesn't realize how many employers will not consider him with just one dui, much less 6..At least he realizes the danger he's putting other drivers in..Good luck kid, your going to need it..

    "It'd be a lot different, I could drive a lot more opportunities I could have taken advantage of easier to get along with." What? Sounds like this dude has had a few too many drinks.

    I don't understand the quote attributed to Mr Boger. What is he saying?

    Check time ain`t it. Did Richard really talk like that? He must have "had a few", he dosen`t even make sense. This just goes to show you beer is not just for breakfast anymore.
