You can add one Mr. Jeremy Nordstrom, formerly of the Myrtle Beach area, to the list of those who learned the hard way that Wonder Woman doesn’t mess around.
Mr. Nordstrom was charged with felony DUI the night he blew a staggering .234 and killed two young ladies who were celebrating a birthday party. Ironically, they were passengers in the car they were in, having the good sense to call someone to get them after they had had too much to drink.
According to the Sun News story, this guy was no stranger to getting in trouble:
Nordstrom was free on bond at the time of the crash after being charged with driving under the influence in 2006 when he crossed the centerline and struck a motorcyclist in Murrells Inlet. He also pleaded guilty to reckless driving and open container in 1998 after being arrested for DUI. In 2001, he was charged with DUI in Pennsylvania and possession and intent distribute marijuana and placed in a pre-trial intervention program.
Judge Kristi Harrington sentenced Nordstrom to 21 years in prison for each of the two counts of causing death and 15 years to the count of causing great bodily injury. The sentences will run concurrently.
"It was your decision to order drink after drink after drink," Harrington said. "And it was your decision to get behind the wheel of that car."
We know we sure are.
When Wonder Woman wields the golden whip of justice, South Carolina is truly a safer place.
