Warranting a post on LoCo and Chiv...AND a DA Press Release! Hit the big time, baby!

Woman Sentenced to 20 Days in Jail After Second DUI - Humboldt County Office of the District Attorney press release/Andrewe Goff/LoCo
DDA Trent Timm scores another win; this against well-known local DUI lawyer Manny Daskal - John Chiv/Words Worth

DA's Press-Release:

Guilty as charged was the jury verdict announced today in Humboldt Superior Court in the case of the People versus Kristina Babauta. After an 8-day trial before Judge Marilyn Miles, Babauta, 31 of Redway, was convicted of driving under the influence, refusing a chemical test and storing an open container. Because the allegation of a prior DUI conviction was also found true, the defendant was sentenced to serve 20 days in jail and fined more than $3000. The case arose from an April 2013 vehicle stop by the California Highway Patrol on Highway 101 near Richardson Grove. The case was prosecuted by Deputy D.A. Trenton Timm and defended by Attorney Manny Daskal.


  1. Sounds like she's a lady from redway who got a dui. Bad reading comprehension? Trick question?

  2. According to her facebook page, she is a glassblower at Renegade Glass Productions.
    Manny Daskal isn't exactly inexpensive.

  3. Well, we don't need drunk drivers at Richardson's Grove, it's dangerous enough already. :)

  4. To all those who are getting in trouble with the law like Babauta, if your DUI lawyer is not familiar with working style of judge and prosecutor, make sure he has a plan to get information about them before stepping a feet in that courtroom. Let me know if you need any help as my friend is a DUI lawyer and can help you.
