David Rael, of Los Alamos, was recently arrested for driving while under the influence in Los Alamos, which may complicate his sentencing for another crime in 2014. Rael was arrested for downloading child porn in May of that year.
He is due to be sentenced for that crime Feb. 24.
Rael, 38, of Los Alamos was arrested Jan. 29 for allegedly driving while under the influence.
Police arrested Rael at a two-car accident at the intersection of Trinity and Central Avenue at 6:51 p.m. While Rael was being transported by ambulance to the Los Alamos Medical Center for an evaluation, He reportedly admitted to police that he was driving while under the influence of alcohol.
“I admit, I’m DWI,” Rael apparently told police, according to reports.
Rael reportedly told police he had consumed a six-pack of an alcoholic beverage two hours before the crash.
Rael is awaiting sentencing on child pornography charges, charges he incurred when he downloaded child pornography onto his computer in May of 2014.
