Drinking Habits Are Major Topic in UVA Lacrosse Murder Trial

ABC news reports that excessive alcohol consumption has been a frequently discussed topic in the trial of former UVA lacrosse player George Huguely V, who is accused of killing UVA women’s lacrosse player Yeardley Love.

The article  claims that stories of binge drinking have been a common topic throughout the trial and that both Huguley and Love were intoxicated at the time of the incident:

George Huguely V estimated to a police officer that he had as many as 20 drinks the day that he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s room and, police charge, killed her.

Huguely’s alleged victim, Yeardley Love, had also spent much of that day drinking. An autopsy determined that her blood alcohol level was about twice the legal limit.

    George Huguely V didn’t know responsiblity when it came to alcohol and there are some people who refuse to learn about responsibility. However, if the drinking age is lowered to 18 with the many recommendations from Ajax the Great and an alcohol license, alcohol abuse will decline significantly. The drinking age won’t solve any problems relating to alcohol abuse, including for people who are 21-24. Teaching responsibility and expecting what has been taught with a drinking age of 18 is what the U.S. should support.

  2. Ajax the Great Says:

    And if my recommendations were followed, a drinking license would not even be necessary.

    Edwin, why do we need a drinking license? Do you not trust young adults?
