We’ll see what happens, but this is a good start!

From the WLTX article:

State troopers have filed charges against a woman who they say is responsible for a crash that killed two people, including a Columbia man.

Sharon King faces two charges of reckless homicide.

Troopers say King was the driver in an accident which killed Thomas Hoskins of Columbia and Lee Ann Barry of Charlotte.

Reckless Homicide in South Carolina is defined as:

When the death of a person ensues within three years as a proximate result of injury received by the driving of a vehicle in reckless disregard of the safety of others, the person operating the vehicle is guilty of reckless homicide. A person who is convicted of, pleads guilty to, or pleads nolo contendere to reckless homicide is guilty of a felony and must be fined not less than one thousand dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both. The Department of Motor Vehicles must revoke for five years the driver’s license of a person convicted of reckless homicide.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

One thought on “Biker Down Update: Tom Hoskins and Lee Ann Barry

  1. The original charges were 2 counts of 2nd degree murder, but were downgraded to reckless homicide in less than 24 hours. Reinstate the original chargeds and allow a plea for Reckless homicide with maximum sentence and fine, with loss of liscence to begin the day after release from prison.

    Oh yeah. Fuck parole, do every last fucking second of that sentence.
