D.A. rejects charges against sheriff's deputy who killed cyclist -
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who was typing on a patrol car computer when he hit and killed a bicyclist in Calabasas last year will not be prosecuted, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said in a statement Thursday.
And here I am going to trial on Monday in Harbor Justice Courthouse defending an 85 year old man who collided with a bicyclist who was turning into his lane OUT of the bike lane that was in existence while he was preparing to switch lanes. Why? B/c of political pressure from cycling enthusiasts (by the way - I CYCLE!), to make an example of an 85 year old man who has NO driving history. Give me a break! This NEVER should have been a criminal case, and I will settle for nothing short of a not guilty - MY CASE WAS AN ACCIDENT, AND ACCIDENTS HAPPEN.
