Biker Down – Jeremiah Horne

Charges have been dismissed against a Fallon man accused of fatally striking a 12-year-old bicyclist with his vehicle while making a cell phone call in August 2006.

Under a civil compromise accepted Friday by Justice of the Peace Terry Graham, Richard Hutchings will pay $1.3 million to the family of victim of Jeremiah Horne in return for the dismissal of a misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charge.

The Horne family asked that Hutchings not be prosecuted, the Lahontan Valley News and Fallon Eagle Standard newspaper reported. The Hornes and Hutchings are members of the same Mormon church.

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

  1. It’s official…$ = freedom in America. If you can afford it, you can kill people. It’s just sad.

  2. I’ve got two children that I protected into adulthood. If someone had made a move on either of them he’d have been a dead man. How can a man take $ for his child’s life? What kind of person would do that? What kind of religion is it that could oversee a deal like that? What kind of country would allow that kinbd of settlement in such a case? What kind of community would allow that to go down?

    You gotta go to the Book of Jeremiah to find anything that remotely responds to this kinda shit.

    tells ya everything you need to know. these assbags put money over everything. even the lives of their children. as a father of 2 myself, if that was my child, there would be no place on this planet for this piece of shit to hide. i would dedicate my life to end his.

  4. The only thing that’s really unusual about the case is the guy literally bought off the justice system in plain sight of the public. That kind of thing is not supposed to happen in developed nations. If caused by distracted driving, every time a driver flattens someone, that driver should at least stand trial. When you’re operating a motor vehicle, you are responsible for what the vehicle does. Now if you have a heart attack or some other unpredictable, debilitating medical emergency, there certainly should be some allowances. But if you’re healthy and operating communications devices, or yelling at Rush Limbaugh, or eating a sandwich, or anything that is avoidable, and that distraction causes you to flatten a person or destroy property with your vehicle, there really ought to be criminal charges filed, no matter what the victim or the victim’s family wants.
