  15. DA wants teen tried as adult for fiery fatal crashRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Oct 16 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    Prosecutors want to charge the teen accused of a fatal fiery crash as an adult but a judge will make the final decision about the fate of the boy who allegedly broadsided a taxi cab, killing the driver, and leaving his two injured passengers while fleeing from authorities. Vehicular manslaughter is not one of the crimes prosecutors are allowed to automatically charge as an adult crime against minor defendants under California's Proposition 21. The District Attorney's Office is allowed to petition the court for such a designation but it typically requires a separate hearing before a judge in addition to the standard preliminary hearing and jury trial.
