    Hey Kurt,
    Nice coverage. If you're interested in continuing to follow this ridiculous story Broward-Palm Beach New Times has been on top of it. Here's just one post about LeVin: http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/pulp/2011/06/ryan_levin_bogenschutz_prison.php

    Why couldn't the family receive compensation in the civil trial and still have LeVin sentenced to jail time in the criminal court? It's utterly ridiculous to receive house arrest for killing two people and fleeing the scene when we throw the book at people who take recreational drugs.

    @David, that left me scratching my head as well. My best guess is that the defendant and his lawyer are politically hooked up in south Florida. In other words, rules simply don't apply to them.

    Ive got a better idea, he pays the families that money AND he goes to jail for the next 45 years of his life...

    People with money are above the law. Period.

    Here in 'Murka we live by the Golden Rule. He who has the Gold, makes the rules.

    The US is trash and the Constitution is a joke. It is a matter of months before the US will cease to exist because the leaders are criminal garbage and should be in front of the military tribunal and tried for treason. TRASH AND GARBAGE

    Shades of Steven Milo, who was severely injured in a hit-and-run in Vail, CO, by Martin Joel Erzinger. The prosecutor refused to press charges against the (very wealthy) Erzinger because a "felony convictions have some pretty serious job implications"-- and that's a quote.

    This troll should spend the rest of his life on his knees in a dark damp dungeon.

    SCUM!! where the f is dexter??!!?!?! this guy deserves to end up in a garbage bag!! hopefully he'll pay with more than cash in the afterlife!

  • Poka Posted: 6/7/2011 6:33am PDT

    LOL he is on house arrest in his mansion for two years...what a tough life.
    Florida's government is seriously horrible...I have yet to see any good judgment come out of that state.

  • GonnaGetcha Posted: 6/7/2011 6:36am PDT

    I volunteer to run this MF'er over with MY Porsche.

  • Arelem Posted: 6/7/2011 11:00am PDT

    Its nice to know that Illinois is going to do what Florida won't and put this joker in jail.

  • Kurt Posted: 6/7/2011 12:29pm PDT

    @Arelem, that assumes that Michigan and Florida can work out a deal on extradition, which I'm sure LeVin's lawyers will fight tooth and nail.

    This scumbag gets off easy while 18-year-old high school prankster Tyell Morton is facing 2-8 years for placing a blow-up doll in the girl's lavatory.

    This dickweed is free to do this again in two years, or possibly sooner. How did this court serve the people?

  • Dennis the Vet Posted: 6/7/2011 11:53pm PDT

    Is this the America my Dad fought for in World War Two?
    Is this the America I fought for in Vietnam?
    Is this the America my son is fighting for in Afganistan? Shame on Florida. Shame on America.
