No plea deal for driver accused of killing Mask:

    Mon, 2009-09-07 21:05 — chernobyl kid

    "An Orange County judge Frida declined to offer a repeat drunken driver a lighter sentence in exchange for a guilty plea to vehicular manslaughter in the high-speed, alcohol-related crash that killed a prominent mixed-martial arts entrepreneur in March."

    "Deputy District Attorney Jason Baez argued that Kirby deserves an 18-year, eight-month prison sentence for "extremely gross negligence" in the March 11 early-morning crash on Jamboree Road in Newport Beach."

    ... "Defense attorney David E. Swanson also said "Mask" Lewis contributed to his own death by racing up to Kirby's 1977 Porsche in his high-performance Ferrari, startling Kirby with the Ferrari's speed and explosive sound. Kirby, the defense attorney claimed, was traveling at about 60 mph when Lewis approached at speeds in excess of 100 mph."

    ... "Lacy Lynn White, Lewis' girlfriend, was seriously injured when she was ejected from the Ferrari. She suffered broken vertebrae, a broken hip, and a shattered elbow, among other injuries."

    ... "Kirby is charged with four felonies, including vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run. He is being held on $500,000 bail at Orange County Jail pending his preliminary hearing next week."

    I believe people should face the consequences of their actions. I hope this does go to trial.

    Agreed, but they were both dumbasses! Got what he deserved acting like that. Too bad innocent bystanders got hurt in the process.

    I agree that both parties involved messed up. I have seen way too much of this type of stuff happen. :(
