I do not think it was an accident. Not when drugs and alcohol in blood. Especially when you are 19. They call it a felony. Check the records. He posted bond (his parents) for a felony charge. Not good for him. Do not shed tears for him. For the dead girl. I'm hearing he is making light of it. I hope he burns in hell.

Yeah I'd say there was a little sarcasm in that post. However, they have a valid point. You seem to have some confusion.

Karma. U r an idiot. No one is shedding tears for him. Most of are saying he made a mistake and now has to live with it. NO ONE gets behind the wheel planning to kill anyone. A lot of people drive when they maybe shouldn't have including me. And if u say u don't well then u r a liar too. Keep your judgmental bullshit to yourself. And who fucking cares if his parents bailed him out. Wouldn't u do the same for your kid? If u say u wouldn't well then I'd say you r lying about that too.

<quoted text>yes he did look at her u idiot that's calling respect for her family and sorrow for what he did it was his cousin
Yes he showed up at the wake and didn't even have enough respect to ask her family if it would be alright if he went!!! He was asked to leave the wake by her FAMILY!! Maybe it had something to do with the night of accident when the officers arrived he was walking around the crime scene and didn't call 911 right away!! The real family obviously didn't want him there!!!

<quoted text>I have not heard at all that he is making light of it. Have you talked to his parents? Have you talked to him? Have you appeared in court with him? Have you heard him say himself that he is making light of it? Sounds like a lot of small town gossip to me, people with nothing better to do but shoot their mouths off about a lot of things just to talk. People like to be heard because it makes them feel important and worthy that someone might listen. I applaud his parents for posting his bond and being parents. They actually care very much and are wonderful people. A dead beat parent might not post bond because they could careless. Not the situation in this case. It was an accident indeed. Perhaps you went to the accident site with a crime scene expert? Or are you just talking like most people do just to be heard? Some legal information for you also. Just because a person is "charged" with a felony does not mean one was actually commtted. Happens all the time and people have won cases in which they were charged but were not convicted. Police reports can be compiled and written to charge a person to try to get a conviction. This also happens all of the time. I have quite a few cop friends and the first thing they are taught at the academy is how to write a police report to get a conviction even though it may not be 100% accurate. They have quotas they have to meet as well, so many misdemeanor charges, so many felony charges, and write so many tickets. It is about raising revenue in the system. Court costs, attorney fees, bond fees, all of which you never get back because those funds go right to the city or county depending on who charged. Bond fees generally go to the attorney/costs and court costs. His blood alcohol concentration was less than .08. THC stays in the system for 30 days. What that means is that a person can use it and then it can show up 5, 10, or even 30 days later. That does not mean it was used on the day of the accident. I see people posting comments about the case that occured previously involvng Matt. Do they know the circumstances as to why there was an incident with the neighbor? What did the neighbor do or say to provoke that? Did that person possibly say something about the family. Maybe he was protecting someone or even someone's honor.......aggrevated DUI resulting in a death means that .08 or greater was found in the system. Not the case here. People need to have their facts in order and straight before commenting because without the facts and knowledge about how the judical system really works, well, make people sound ignorant to how things work. Now, THC is illegal in IL but having it in the system is not a felony. Controversal issue because it is legal in some states. It has to be proven that it was used on the day of the accident which is impossible. Also, consuption of alcohol by a minor is also illegal but he was not legally drunk. The roads were icy and snow covered, the paper stated that they (the sheriff's dept) recognized that. There was also a deep ditch, also reflected. I bet there are a lot of 19 y/o's who have committed the crime of consuming alcohol and have done a lot worse than THC. I bet even you drank alcohol when you were 19. Maybe you even drove afterwards. Did you commit a crime? The answer would be yes. You just never got caught.
Where did you read the evidence of his blood alcohol content?

Don't you just enjoy reading from parents defending their dirt bag son. He is a loser. Yes, he has made light of the accident. Yes, he is going to prison. We can only hope it is for a long time. She is dead. He is alive. That is the bottom line.

Are you that stupid? You are right. He was just arrested on a ton of charges because the officer was bored and had nothing to do. He is innocent. As pure as the fresh driven snow. Those JJC attorneys amaze me. Quit giving us your legal opinions. He is in a ton of trouble. Looking at prison time. And that is the bottom line.
