    Let's see what type of cheap offenses they throw at him.

    Cheap offenses???

    The DUI alone is going to cost at least $10 grand for lawyers, fines, court costs, drug and alcohol evaluation,

    The death part under DUI laws will at least double the money and jail time a very real possibility…. In other words certainly not cheap…. And if you get guilty on drug charge, no more student loans

      He killed a person. Prisoners do not get student loans in any case. I don't think he will be too upset about that anyway.

    Killing someone with a vehicle should be charged exactly as if it were with a gun.
