    Thats unfortunate for both sides of that accident. Too bad it happened. IMO, if it can be determined that this guy passed out due to his diabetis when the accident happened, he should be released.

    If you had a medical condition that one day caused you to accidentally take the life of an innocent bystander, would you like to go to prison for 10 years? I think the guilt anyone with a conscience would carry could be considered punishment enough.

    Its a shame it happened, but it sounds like a real accident to me. You want to toss someone in the slammer, go talk to this guy's doctors that gave him his prescriptions! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] The medical defence is BS. He has a long history of speeding and running stop signs. Not even a year ago he almost hit a car at that same intersection becouse he ran the sign.

    probably an urban legend, maybe it worked once on some dumb cop where a witness saw the person sneeze from the side of the road or something

    Kinda funny that he comes up with the low blood sugar excuse months after the accident. First he claims he swerved to avoid a on comming car, but no witnesses sean any other car. He just needs to admitt that he was going too fast and ran the sign.

    So have You ever drivin over the speed limit? Yeah the guy fawked up and should be charged with manslaughter but what the hell I'm sure no jail sentence will never amount to the guilt that the poor sap will have to live with.

    Amazingly enough, he WAS found guilty of manslaughter.

    story about Janklow

    It'll be interesting to see what happens with the sentencing phase.
