    Would be a neat magic trick to conjure up motive from a most likely drunk-idiot.

    From the sounds of the story, I’m surprised the guy didn’t go into the kitchen and help himself to a beer and a plate of nachos after crashing.

    I’m now lawyer, nor do I claim to know thing 1 about US law, but if *I* was prosecuting a douchebag bazillionaire who didn’t have the key piece of evidence even collected from him, I’d assume whatever I charge him with would fail.

    So, if I charge him for manslaughter, and it fails, he walks. IF, however, I charge him for murder, and it fails, then there’s still the manslaughter level to fall back on. A jury is going to be disgusted with this guy. An honest judge will be disgusted with this guy and know he did SOMETHING. So if I charge murder, convince them that he did kill the guy, but can’t show motive, then they let murder drop and go with manslaughter.

    I was as surprised as anybody that they charged him with murder. I’m with Astin on this one. I think he’ll be convicted of a lesser charge like manslaughter.

    Even though we’ve all seen money buy folks out of a lot, I have a gut feeling that this is the end of the line for Mr. Ludwig. You can’t go through life without the bad karma you’ve spread catching up to you eventually.

    Is claiming 100% responsibility for the crash not the same as admission of guilt? What more does anyone know about the white SUV that was there up soon after and left before the authorities arrived?
