Ethical issue possibly but with a decent lawyer not guilty.<quoted text>
Not guilty. No one forced those women to go to his aid. He is not culpable.
"A 19-year-old driver who crashed into a utility pole in Valley Village has been ordered to stand trial for manslaughter in the deaths of two women who tried to come to his aid, only to be electrocuted by downed power lines.
Arman Samsonian of Glendale slammed his sport utility vehicle into a light pole and nearby fire hydrant last Aug. 22. After the violent crash, two women ran toward the SUV to render aid, officials said.
Both of the would-be rescuers, Irma Zamora and Stacey Schreiber, were killed instantly when they stepped into a pool of water that had been electrified by 4,800 volts from the fallen power line.
Six others were injured when they also made contact with the water and were shocked.
On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that there was enough evidence for Samsonian to be tried on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
“He was definitely driving negligently, he definitely had disregard for others,” Superior Court Judge Karen Nudell said.
She made the ruling after witnesses took the stand to relay the horrible, fast-moving events of that summer night."
