This guy was wanted by US Marshals (that’s why he was hiding in kalalau) ; he’s claiming no evidence against him despite the fact you can see he’s wasted and beat up from the crash. Please make sure he gets a fair trial, quickly, then send him to prison for a long long time.
I can’t believe the idiot claims not guilty. We live at the apartments and heard the terrific crash. Then we ran and watched as the fire dept tried desperately to get her out of the mangled car. What a shame and useless lose of life. The family needs to heal. He deserves to get the maximum sentence possible to keep him off the streets as he has no care in the world for what he has done.
I know it’s the job of a lawyer to defend but to plea not guilty is ludicrous, can’t they see the guilt admit it ask the jury for proper justice? I mean really, not guilty, did the stolen truck just do 88 mph by itself and cross a lane to violently smash into a oncoming vehicle?
