STILLWATER, Minn. (WCCO) — A 38-year-old Mahtomedi man was sentenced to more than four years in jail in Washington County District Court on Tuesday for driving drunk during a crash last August that injured at least three teenagers and gave one victim traumatic facial injuries.

Edward Jaworski pleaded guilty to three counts of criminal vehicular operation, one count of gross misdemeanor DWI and one count of driving after cancellation back in March. He was charged Feb. 15. He will serve 51 months (four years and four months) in the Washington County Jail.

According to a criminal complaint, Jaworski was driving drunk when he hit four vehicles that were stopped at a stoplight on Valley Creek Road in Woodbury. Authorities said Jaworski was driving in excess of 80 miles per hour when he hit the first vehicle on Valley Creek Road in Woodbury at about 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 22, 2010.

Jaworski had been drinking at the Acapulco restaurant, and he registered a blood alcohol level of .24 after the crash.

Jaworski also has four prior alcohol-related driving offenses, two within the last 10 years. His license was previously revoked on April 19, 2001, and Aug. 1, 2010.

    By the way, he also got another DWI subsequent to the one in this story. At some point, shouldn’t we remove a body part required to drive?

      poke out his eyes…

        Poking his eye wont stop him. You have to remove his legs….

  2. Ray Gunn says:

    Revoking a licence is a waste of time with people like this. 4 years county time means he is out in less than two and back at it. What a joke our courts are …again… This guy needs 10 solid years in Stilllwater. Why do victoms always have to suffer more then the creeps who continue to drive drunk?

  3. NRA Member and not a drinker says:

    He’s had more than the 2 you referenced. I won’t address the body part. lol
    This is one of the better (longer) sentences I’ve seen for similar so I dunno. He’ll dry out and maybe he can become something in future. (?)
    It’s that grey area – to much time they get super hard and may as well shoot them inside. To little and they don’t learn a damn thing.
    I guess I think this is totally good and fair. If he’d killed someone after all the previous convictions hes had I’d demand he be executed or life inside minimum.
    Hope he gets it together and becomes productive in future

    I agree that he needs a much stiffer sentence. He crashes in to 4 cars and badly disfigures a young man and then shortly after that, he gets another DUI. Give me a break! This guy obviously doesn’t care.

    1. Curtain call for the dude says:

      You folks always crack me up.
      Rubin – read the friggen article. Read it twice more. Then again.
      He had previous convictions. He did NOT get another one after the accident. Are you as dense as he is????????
      If he serves 4 years he’s done his time. That’s a living hell. If he doesn’t learn thien lock him up for life.

      And learn to read and comprehend what you read here folks before you flap your stupid jaws. Dumb — you sound like morons

        hay “Curtain call for the dude”
        We were referencing from personal knowelge. We were not referencing this artical that he got more DWIs after the crash he caused. You are the one who needs to comprehend what you read and think maybe someone knows more than what is in a news story. We do and this fool got more DWIs after the crash he caused. I think all the name calling applies to yourself now.

  5. Britt says:

    Just to clear this up, please goto and type in his name. You will find he did NOT receive another DWI after this one stated in the article.

    Hello All,
    To set the story straight, Edward was arrested after he crashed into those three teens. He was given an alcohol montoring braclet after posting bail. He was then arrested again when the braclet went off. He was sent to Hazeldon treatment center (on the states dime I presume) and then released.
    Shortly after that he managed to get another vehicle, drink and roll that vehicle as well. I then was sent back to jail to await this trial. The public access doesn’t update very often. But I know for a fact he rolled another vehicle after this tragic accident, the only bright side in that scenario was that no one was hurt. This guys is a professional drunk, and a professional criminal. He will do this again, I’m certain. I hope he has
    Fitzgeralds face burned into his mind for the rest of his life. So he’ll always remember the pain he has caused for simply not calling a taxi.

      He should have been put on house arrest with the monitoring bracelet. I’ve even heard of people having to call in up to 5 times a day! There are systems that register the calls and signal alarms when the call isn’t made. It could have been done, and should have with this guy. I wonder if he’s ever sober long enough to realize what he’s done when he’s been drunk!
