    Both prosecution and defense will start from scratch.
    Obviously, he was the one who ran the light, but they'll try to paint that it's also her fault for being impaired to where she couldn't avoid the crash.

    As I said a month ago.... Leyritz will never get found guilty of any manslaughter charge.

    I said then that it was because she wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

    This clinches it.

    Oh of course, million-dollar ballplayer gets drunk and splatters someone, let's all start looking for excuses for him.

    So Jim Leyritz, piece of shit that he is, thinks he'll walk on this because she was drunk too.
    Good god, our sytem of "justice" sucks.

    We had a case around here last year, where a 16-year-old girl - drunk on beer from a high school party - drilled a car on New Year's Day. Killed the driver, a very popular bartender in town. Turns out he was drunk, too. She still got time. She was drunk, she ran the light.

    If you're drunk and crash, you're screwed. No defense.

    You could be sitting parked in your car on the side of the street and some idiot swerves into you and gets killed, and you can still be convicted of intoxication manslaughter.

    And you can also be acquitted of it.

    So now we know 1 - victim was not wearing seatbelt and 2 - over the limit.

    Good defense attorney will have a field day.

    Especially if the defense can prove she would've survived if she wore the damn belt.
