Jason Kidd’s Plea Deal Enrages MADD

Newly hired New York Nets head coach Jason Kidd has a deal worked out on hit 2012 DWI. Of course, MADD took issue with Kidd getting a deal that included a reduction in charge.

So the beat goes on, apparently. A celebrity is charge with DWI, and receives a deal some would argue that only would be available to a celebrity, or an otherwise “connected” person. In response, MADD is there to call attention to the case. Kidd will get his plea arrangement honored, no doubt. But will MADD be successful in their stated goal of using this incident to further toughen New York DWI/DUI laws?
