What about the DWI citation which you escaped by leaving the scene?

I am sorry to hear that you were in an accident and fled the scene. Thank god everyone's ok.
A viewer writes are you going to do the right thing or do you think you are above the law. What does that mean to you Mr. Phoebus? What does the right thing or above the law mean?? Do you think the right thing to do is to walk in admit to everything you did tell them how much you drank, then hit a car and ran off, OR maybe you didn't do it at all OR Maybe you won't get charged because they don't have enough evidence against you and they are your friends that you work with. Hmmm what are you going to do Mr. Phoebus? Lets see you are not a teenager or a college student you are about 40 maybe 50 and you are a lawyer that knows the law. You know the law just like LEO's they know the laws. It is your job to know the law, so are you above the law? Are the LEO officers above the law by not arresting you? Mr.Phoebus who will you get for a lawyer? I sure hope you choose a lawyer very carefully I would hate to see you choose a lawyer that really doesn't have your best interest.That would stink wouldn't it!! I think their is a word for or is it a filing for that I am certain you know what that is Mr. Phoebus. Do you think your lawyer will file a motion for dismissal or just wait for more charges to be filed hmmm what would you do Mr. Phoebus. Do you think they can prove it or maybe they will just make up a bunch of fake charges against you. What do you think your lawyer would do? How about the states attorney do you think he would bring fake charges against you? Mr. Phoebus I am sure you have nothing to worry about it is not like you are facing 15 years in prison and you have four months to worry about it and your lawyer gave you a letter that said they will seek incarceration if you don't take a plea deal lol thats just crazy right! That doesn't happen right! Oh and after this gets in the news do you think you will still have an office. I would hate to see you not be able to get a job after this. This doesn't happen in real life does it Mr.Phoebus.

Good ole boys network said...

Lol
After I sobered up I realized I left the scene of a accident but don't tell the cops I was DRUNK.... Anyway the rules don't apply too me I know ALL the Prosecutors and judges only the working man gets the SHAFT.

Was he drunk or high ??? That ain't no damn mistake. I am calling WBOC !!! If he was black the shit would be different.

Nice spin on the truth.
According to eyewitnesses, Phoebus was driving all over the road, hit another car and fled. Then ditched his car, ran to his mother's house and she told the police he wasn't home. A day later, after lawyering up, he resurfaces and DUI can't be proved.

What kind of Attorney does not know the law? Or, do you know the law, and just think it does not apply to you? Sorry excuse for a lawyer.

5:59 you are an idiot....scroll down and look at the dumbass Frederick!!! Black privilege got his conviction overturned! He, Phoebus, was charged with traffic violations which will no doubt result in fines and probably some kind of sentence......wait for the outcome! No doubt a race baiter sent by A$$BURROW.....

All the local judges should be recused - get one from across the Bay to sentence him.

Crisfield good ole boy network still in place. Hopefully the judge won't play along with them on this one.

Somerset has had a string of unusual members at the local (courtroom) bar -- Tony Bruce, Jack Willing and this one to name the latest in the line that also includes "Sandy" Jones and the Simpkins boys.

My Two Cents said...

You all can believe Mr Phoebus drinks and does drugs all you want. You all can say he should have been charged with drinking and driving because you have heard rumors or actually observed him abusing drugs/alcohol

There can be many factors causing a driver to cross over the centerline and hit another car. Without someone detaining Mr Phoebus at the scene until LEO arrived, - without LEO locating Mr Phoebus, immediately, how can he be charged with DUI/DWI?

John broke the law , as it is wrong to leave the scene. He has admitted that and turned himself in, saying he is guilty as charged. There but for the Grace of God go I (or you). Would any of us, say "Oh you didn't charge me of drinking and driving - I am guilty of that too."

Perhaps John is guilty of all the rumors on here, think what you will, but where is the proof? If John has an abuse problem, then this should be his wake up call, and thank his Lord no one was hurt and he has a chance to right his wrong.

IMO John is a good lawyer and an asset to his community - all around good
person, with many friends, some in high places, but without proof, can anyone be charged with cover-up? Again, think what you will, but thoughts and rumors do not make it the truth, nor can the Law charge you with such.

7:58 Yes and we all know where Tony Bruce and Jack Willing ended up ,don't we?

Lawyers are supposed to have integrity, leaving the scene shows that he does not. He should be reported to the bar association.

Kudos to John for knowing the law and using it to his advantage. AND for setting an example of what to do to beat a DUI charge because, there is no earthly reason for anyone, anyone, and especially someone with the intelligence and 'supposed' integrity of John to leave the scene of an accident unless he had something to hide. And yes, he will come out on top, and beat the system, but the taint of deceit will always exist. Fortunately for him, the majority of people forget, but to others, the ones who have always felt there was something off' - he has proven them right. And to those who need him, he has elevated himself to a higher status as the man to help 'fix' problems. Again, congrats for a job well done all around!

I have know John Phoebus for many years and yes he is a drunk. I saw him on Friday evening and he was trashed and then got in his car and hit someone. Mr. Phoebus believes he is above the law and yes he admits to getting several traffic citations, but after reading his statement I saw no where that he said he was DRUNK and that after the accident he drove around the area then parked his car and ran. Way to be A BIG BOY JOHN run from your mistakes as always!

The more serious crime is leaving the scene in my opinion because it was a deliberate and premeditated act, regardless of whether he was under the influence or intoxicated/stoned.

If I even get a speeding ticket it's in those court records. So why isn't his?

No one is above the law John Phoebus.You may have got away with it this time but Karma is going to get you.You need to go into treatment for your alcohol abuse.You will never be trusted again to do the right thing.You knew what you were doing when you fled the scene to avoid a potential DWI.You should not ever be able to represent our citizens again until you learn the meaning of integrity and stop breaking the law.
