Whenever a defendant is convicted of a DUI or a Wet Reckless, the Court
must give the following advisement commonly referred to as a Watson Warning:
You are hereby advised that being under the influence of alcohol or drugs
or both, impairs your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Therefore
it is extremely dangerous to human life to drive while under the influence
of alcohol or drugs or both. If you continue to drive while under the
influence of alcohol or drugs or both and as a result of that driving
someone is killed, you can be charged with murder.
This advisement - Watson Warning - may be used as evidence that a defendant
acted with implied malice in a prosecution for second degree murder. The
advisement may be given orally by the Court or the prosecutor and is generally
contained in any waiver form to be executed by the defendant on plea to a DUI.
