How are you so quick to judge someone? Let's look at it from a different perspective. What if she had gotten behind the wheel that night? What if he had been killed? Would you be judging her? Would you be saying, how dare her be with a married man and now his family is living without him. It takes two. She was messing with a married man just as well as he was cheating. She was drinking also. How do you know that he even remembers what happened? do you really think he would have intentionally left her there for dead? Come on.. Its not like the "affair" was a secret.. He had nothing to hide.. Get your facts straight before you start pointing fingers and placing blame..
is that you eddie?

MAYBE HE DIDNT MENTION HER BECAUSE HE DIDNT REMEMBER WHAT HAD HAPPENED..HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE WAS NOT AN ALTERCATION IN THE VEHICLE WHICH LEAD TO THE WRECK TO BEGIN WITH?

Just to let people know that on Mr.Gants best days he could not walk 17 miles. Even if she hit him to cause the wreck why would he leave the scene? Cell phone also is missing,isn't that convenient. People use the good sense that your mama and daddys gave you. I know it was most likely a accident but stand up for your wrongdoing and take it like a man!

<quoted text> This trial will be held in White Co.(99%) sure, Why move it? When all the charges against him are read, to a jury, whether they are in Atlanta on Cleveland, the verdict will be the same (GUILTY), This killer is going to the SLAMMER, or face the Death Penalty. You can take that to the bank, HE WILL BE PUNISHED..
First, I take no sides in this issue. I don't know, haven't met, nor attended an action run by this person. However, this is not a capital case where a death penalty would be a party to a possible conviction. If guilty, the man is guilty of driving under the influence that resulted in a death. Ask any attorney or judge and they will tell you the same. I don't know exactly what the possible sentence is for this crime if proven guilty, but death is not one of those options.

I know there are many frustrating issues reference this person (according to what has been written, true or false), but causing a death in a vehicle accident with no intent is not punishable by death. It would appear that some folks are wishing for the harshest penality possible, but you must let the court system run its course.

And please don't take "that" to the bank just yet! Does it seem like a solid case? Probably. But juries have been known to disappoint people.

Remember the OJ Simpson case? 15-16 years later people are still upset with that verdict. I for one am convinced that OJ litterly got away with the "intended" murder of two people.

Are the Gants the folks who spend their Christmas doing for others? If they are the folks I think they are then they are some TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE people.

They spend THEIR MONEY on needy kids, take it to them and feed needy famlies all year long.

why can't they be more like the Christians on here. Show up on Sunday, look holy and then cut throats every day of the week.

What is wrong with the Gants? Don't they get the message?

Death penalty? Where did you go to law school.

FIRST, just reading the charges does not do it. There MUST be a hearing of evidence called a TRIAL. This is where BOTH sides come out.

Then citizens in a group called a JURY decide if there is any reason to convict or any doubt not to convict. Just a little doubt is all that is needed not to convict.

See, liberty is the most guarded thing we have and public opinion is NOT enough to convict. There must be evidence or proof.

So far, what I have seen and know is GANT may have been DUI but the test results show ZERO in his blood.

Next, he was near death from exposure when taken to the hospital. You do not get that from riding in a car away from the scene.

Lastly, Dee Dee was killed instantly. A doctor could have been in the truck wth her and she would still be dead.

Also, the GSP is looking into Dee Deed causing the wreck herself.

We all know Dee Dee and how she was. Any wonder she was out with a married man? See, this street runs both ways.

Damn, I've had bad days but you are stupid to the bone.

If anyone is an idiot, YOU are an idiot!!!!!!!!
Eddie Gant is heartless, worthless and gives every man a bad name. And from your diarrhea mouth you got to be as sick as he is to even stick up for someone as low as Eddie Gant. So your Eddie, Donna, or Jenny or his new screw. Not sure but maybe you should see a doctor because you done lost your mind. If I was you I would hide under the bed and never come out. Its people like you that let people as sick as Eddie run the streets and myself is sick of it. But we all know the fact is he left her alone.

Do you really think good people leave a loved one in the cold just to die like Eddie Gant did? And if they feed needy family why are people going hungry? Gants have no heart for anyone but them self and what little they have done is just a cover up. So please, you cant fool anyone of us. And by the way they have gone to church just to put others down. Just ask the people that went to church with them, why they no longer go to church.

I bowled with the Gants for a few years. My children bowled with Jenny. For years I listen to them talk about anyone and everyone. The children on Yaba had to raise money to go to state every year and the Gants never gave for that, so please dont talk about how they help others. Donna was to good to help get kids to states with a ride or anything,just as long as her little Jenny made it. A few parents couldnt afford the childrens pants, but the family that had money problems always help out. You can ask so many people how they feel about the Gants and its never good. One person can come on here all day and change their name and say all the good they want, but the fact is face to face is a whole new story.

No go waste your time on helping people instaed of degrading them
Yet Mr Gant had Vanessa Coble with him? Wow I'd rather not know what he considered loving this family. Great men cheat? That's news to me!

If she was driving and he got killed we would probably say, GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIM, CHEATER! Then we would have said HANG HER for being a homewrecker & while you're at it for vehicular homicide.
