Question by Karma CP : Nevada Trooper Charged With Manslaughter .. His sentence should be ?? LAS VEGAS – A state trooper was charged Monday with nine felony counts of reckless driving and involuntary manslaughter in a crash that killed four people.
Trooper Joshua Corcran was driving 113 mph on Interstate 15 when his cruiser slammed into a car on Feb. 19 as he rushed home for dinner, police said. The posted speed limit was 65 mph.
Corcran’s lawyer, Steve Wolfson, said his client would appear in court Tuesday to answer the charges.
“His career is at stake. His livelihood is at stake,” Wolfson said. “Of course he is disappointed.”
According to a police report, the trooper said he had just responded to an accident.
But neither his emergency lights nor siren were activated, and he did not contact his dispatcher to say he was involved in a high-speed chase or was responding to an emergency call, the report said.
Corcran, a five-year veteran of the Nevada Highway Patrol, was treated for broken bones, cuts and bruises & placed on paid medical leave.
Just curious Best answer:
Answer by ana
the maximum the law will allow in this case. If I was rushing home for dinner driving 48 miles over the speed limit and killed four people, I will deserve to go to jail the rest of my life for careless and selfish. I don’t believe you could call it an accident because any one driving at that speed could expect something like this to happen even if that was an emergency call. If it was some reckless driver driving at that speed then people will not think of it twice.
