Attorney wants probation in fatal crash

Feb 6, 2014 Full story: Daily Herald 10

The defense attorney for an Antioch-area teen who was charged in an illegal street race that left one person dead said his client should be sentenced to probation, not prison, because of "extraordinary circumstances" in the case.

Extraodinary circumstances my ass. He's a punk kid who took the life of another. He should rot in jail. The other driver, who wasn't high, had a license, and didn't crash or kill anyone, did jail time and he had an even more messed up childhood.

Own up to it Jeremy - you killed someone. Quit making excuses. Take your punishment and maybe then you'll grow up to be a man.

What s extraordinary is why this case keeps stalling and we keep paying for it! Jail might actually teach him that lowlifes never take responsibility for what they do - he would be in good company and I may even raise his self esteem.

I understand it's his attorney's job to try and get him off, but this whole theory is ridiculous. I agree with the first poster - the other driver is doing jail time and he didn't directly hurt anyone.

This kid needs to suck it up and own up to his actions. Probation is letting him get away with murder. Literally.

Agree with all of the above. He needs to take responsibility for his actions. Dawson plead guilty, this kid needs to follow his example.

I was wondering the same thing. Haven't gotten into a topix fight with him in months. I'm guessing he's sick or something....maybe gone?? Strange he was here fighting with someone one day and gone the next.

Unrelated to this case but bar talk has it an Antioch lawyer is as slimy as they come. I just left Anastasias restaurant where I overheard a conversation talking about a steamy extra marital romance at a lawyer’s office in town. It was also said it should be widely known before the next chamber or staff meeting. We left so I didn’t hear the rest of the story. If you have the juicy details please share!

Since when does an extramarital affair become your business or anyone elses for that matter? Just because my mechanic had an extramarital affair does that make him unfit to repair my car? It makes him a not so good husband, not much else. Find somewhere else to spout off your rumors.
