Obama’s Uncle Loses License For 45 Days In Drunk Driving Case

FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — A judge ordered the drunk driving charge against President Barack Obama’s uncle to be continued without a finding for one year Tuesday.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones reports

Onyango Obama, the half-brother of the president’s late father, was arrested in Framingham in August 2011, after a police officer claimed Obama made a rolling stop at a stop sign and nearly caused his cruiser to crash into Obama’s SUV.

Obama then registered 0.14 on a blood-alcohol test, according to police.  The legal limit in Massachusetts is 0.08.

At a hearing in Framingham District Court Tuesday morning, Obama’s attorney told the judge there are sufficient facts in the case against his client.

By agreeing to the continuance without a finding, Obama avoids pleading guilty to drunk driving and the charge will be dismissed, if he stays out of trouble for one year.

Two other charges against him were dismissed.

But, Obama will lose his drivers license for 45 days.  He also must pay $1,000 in fines and fees.

“By admitting to sufficient facts today to operating under the influence and failure to yield at an intersection, the defendant has admitted responsibility for the essence of the crime he committed and has now been held accountable for his actions,” District Attorney Gerry Leone said in a statement.

Obama’s arrest last year also caught the attention of immigration investigators who claim he violated a 1992 order to return to Kenya.

His case is still before the immigration court.

“This proceeding today should have little, if any, impact on his immigration status,” Obama’s attorney Scott Bratton told reporters Tuesday.

Obama has been in the United States since 1963 when he came to Massachusetts on a visa from Kenya.  He attended to Buckingham Browne & Nichols in Cambridge,  graduated from Newton High School, and went to Boston State College, according to his attorney.

Bratton said Obama came here legally and stayed, but he just never filled out the proper paperwork.

Obama will be allowed to return to his current job at a liquor store in Framingham.

He did not speak to reporters after leaving court Tuesday.

Bratton said he and his client have not had contact with the White House regarding the drunk driving case.

    His attorney Scott Bratton told reporters Tuesday that Obama came here legally and stayed, but he just never filled out the proper paperwork to make it legal.

    THEREFORE HE IS HERE ILLEGALLY.

  3. al hughes says:

    Awesome fix job by the Prez’s peeps!!

  5. Willow says:

    Good grief, it took this long to decide to take his license away, and just for 45 days? Even though his immigration case is before the magistrate, nothing will change the fact that he’s here illegally. He had plenty of time to get the proper paperwork in order. He’ll be driving drunk again, watch and see. Hopefully, he won’t have to kill someone to take his driving privileges away for good. How in the world do illegals get a valid driver’s license in the first place?

    2. Realist says:

      Judges don’t pass/create laws.

      1. emom says:

        NO they pass stupid judgements that create these damn laws that should have been in-forced in the first place… If we get rid of JUDGES and LAWYERS like these then maybe all the damn lousy DRUNKS would go to jail, stay there of the roads and get the help they so need and make it safer for others… its the JUDGES & LAWYERS causing this country to have the many cases that allow these scum to walk around free and commit their crimes over & over & OVER & OVER AGAIN. SO YES THE JUDGES ARE AT FAULT FOR THE LAWS THAT ARE PASSED & CREATED..

    3. gramps says:

      emom, when you feel the need to drop the F-bomb, just insert ‘PH’ instead of ‘F’….

      Just trying to help…

      gramps

    4. gramps says:

      LOWELL (CBS) – A four-month-old marmoset named Nene is being deported because he was in Massachusetts illegally.

  7. gotta love this liberal state says:

    Gee, what a shocker that this happened. Nothing to do with his family relations though, wink wink. So he gets to stay here for another year as a ILLEGAL rat, will still drive even though he “lost his license” – he’ll just buy another license under another name like they all do. He may even change his identity and move somewhere else, continue living here illegally like they all do.
    Only one fix for this – DEPORT DEPORT DEPORT!

  8. bsprtsgrp says:

    This guy works at a small liquor store in Framingham. How is he able to afford a team of attorneys to defend him here, they weren’t court appointed…..

    1. emom says:

      He can afford it courtesy of you and everyone in Framingham… Who do you think is paying his court & lawyer fees .. HE IS PAYING NOTHIG,,,thus free to him. Welcome to your taxes you and I pay..

      1. ginny2 says:

        And as I am sure Autie Z would tell you, the US owes it to him too. Funny how our current President now has 2 relatives that have in the past been ordered deported. One has been allowed to stay permanetly on our dime and we all know this one will be given the same treatment. When is the President going to be forced to take full financial resposibility for these 2?

  9. tsal-kv says:

    The judge that let him free should be locked up with him. It’s not just him and ridiculous to think it is – Framingham is literally loaded with illegals along with a good portion of the rest of the country.

  10. dbus85 says:

    How does he get to go back to his job at the liquor store as an illegal alien? can someone please tell me that???

    1. emom says:

      Blame his boss,, he is probably illegal too.. who knows

  11. Realist says:

    Every commenter here is seemingly un-American. The guy’s case is still before the immigration court. Last I checked defendants in the criminal justice system are innocent until proven guilty. We’re a nation of laws here folks..

    1. Willow says:

      He’s here as an illegal immigrant. Do you think he’s not guilty of anything? He was guilty of driving drunk. He’s no longer innocent because he has been proven guilty.

      We may be a nation of laws, but unfortunately many of them aren’t enforced.

      1. Realist says:

        Your first statement is a presumption of guilt in an unrelated case. Until his immigration case is closed, you can’t assume he’s guilty of being here illegally. Also, people don’t get deported for drunk driving.

    2. firemanmark says:

      He was ordered deported 20 years ago.He is here ILLEGALLY! Which part don’t you get? Why should any part of his status be up for debate? Time to vote Obamao out before taxpayers become tax slaves and we support all of Baracks ilk! Smarten up Massachusetts taxpayers.

    3. blackbear1 says:

      UnAmerican, you say!! It is someone “unrealistic” like you who is unamerican. How can you possibly preach to those who wish this damaged system to repair itself. this guy has long ago defied a deportation officer. These commenters you have insulted are weary of watching our beloved country committ suicide at the the border end people like you thinking it is ok. This guy has no standing in the criminal justice system. Realist. Maybe you need to leave as well.

  12. Barack Obama says:

    Hey People, Guess what?

    There is no way you are going to deport my uncle because you don’t have the power to. Do yourself a favor and shut your mouths and walk your obese bodies back to the couch and sit down and watch your sports games.

    Wait until you see what I have in store for you fools next time you vote for me!

    1. Enough says:

      And there will be plenty of FOOLS who will vote for you again!

    2. web says:

      and for those that don’t like sports…there’s always those Reality shows…plenty of them!

  13. Wayne Nuttall says:

    Throw him back to Africa. If he was my relative & here illegally, (which is against the law), he’d be sent back. Take the illegal aunt as well & defect them both. America doesn’t need to feed them.

  14. linda says:

    Is this a standard punishment for a crime of this nature?

  15. emom says:

    All either of them are doing is taking the food, housing & healthcare from the thousands of AMERICAN CHILDREN her in this state with their families LEGALLY…… Try explaining to a child why they can not have all this because our law system stinks and allows a drunk, & illegal person to SHACK up and take advantage of what this state gives… Oh not to mention the money we have to pay to support them DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY & for that matter THE REST OF THEIR NATURAL LIVES……

  16. ETHAN says:

    he a illegal is the judge looking for a new job with the president

  17. sloppjohnB2 says:

    It’s time to deport him AND the Judge. The judge’s green card should be checked. It probably has expired as well. Deval will find a way to give him sanctuary. If that fails, there is always Queen Liz, the anointed one, to plead his case. This state is moonbat heaven.

  18. fred says:

    How can they give him his license back if he fraudulently obtained it by using someone else social security number in the first place. He certainly was not given one as a person who over stayed his visa. I have heard Obama’s SS # was issued in Connecticut (where he has never resided) and his Uncles was issued from Connecticut as well. Seems like they may have purchased their number from the same place.

  19. Jake says:

    A bad precedent for all future (and past) DUI cases. Equal justice under the law.

  20. Dan says:

    Why wasn’t he instantly deported? He was supposed to be shipped home back in 1992.

  21. Rob Cleary says:

    Boycott Conti’s Liquors in Framingham . They are enabling criminal activity by hiring this bum.

  22. web says:

    Can you get a license in Massachusetts if you are an illegal? I didn’t know you could….? Are we not allowed to ask that anymore? Anyone know?

    1. Enough says:

      They just buy identities and obtain a license with that. And yes, I know many who have done it and just laugh at those of us who actually question it, they know this is a sanctuary state. They took this license away (which was most likely using some unknowing person’s soc sec #) and he will buy another ss# and apply for a new license under that new name. They all do it, it is unbelievably easy. How do you think they get gov’t benefits? It is just totally disgusting what this foolish state allows.

      1. dan says:

        WELL, IT’S TIME TO CLEAN HOUSEI IN THIS STATE…GO OUT AND VOTE THESE CLOWNS OUT… SAME OLD SAME OLD HACKACHUSETTS
