Man with 2 DUI convictions found guilty of killing 77-year-old grandmother

A man with two prior drunk driving convictions was found guilty Wednesday of striking and killing a 77-year-old woman, and seriously injuring her boyfriend, when he crossed into oncoming traffic in San Juan Capistrano, officials announced Thursday.

Edward James Nani, 41, of Lake Forest, was convicted by a jury of one felony count of second-degree murder, one felony count of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury, one felony count of driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more, and two felony enhancements of inflicting great bodily injury, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours before returning with guilty verdicts on all counts, the DA’s office noted.

Around 8:30 p.m. on March 31, 2018, Nani was driving on the Ortega Highway when another motorist noticed his erratic driving, including crossing into oncoming traffic, and started recording him, the DA’s office said. That person called 911 to report a drunken driver, telling the dispatcher the motorist was going to kill someone.

Amparo Castellon Lopez, 77, and her boyfriend, Jose Robert Pacheco, 74, were on their way home from visiting Lopez’s daughter and grandchildren when they were hit by Nani’s car as he crossed into oncoming traffic, officials said.

Lopez was killed and Pacheco suffered a broken arm, leg, pelvis and ribs.

Nani has previously been convicted of driving under the influence twice, once in 2002 and again in 2010.

Drivers convicted of a DUI in California are required to be given a Watson advisement, which informs them that if they kill someone while driving under the influence, they can be charged with murder, the DA’s office noted. Nani received the Watson advisement when he pled guilty in 2010 to misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more.

“This individual repeatedly demonstrated that he had no regard for human life and it was only a matter of time before he killed someone by getting behind the wheel intoxicated,” O.C. District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a written statement. “Getting behind the wheel while intoxicated or high or drugs is a choice and it can be a deadly choice. With bars and restaurants back open for business following the pandemic, it is more important than ever to make good choices when you drink or do drugs. If you make the choice to get behind the wheel and you kill someone while impaired, you could be charged with murder.”  

Nani is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 13, and faces a maximum sentence of 21 years to life in prison. https://ktla.com/news/local-news/man-with-2-dui-convictions-found-guilty-of-killing-77-year-old-grandmother-in-san-juan-capistrano-wrong-way-crash/

Kingman box truck driver gets 16 years in crash that killed 5 bicyclists

Nevada Highway Patrol investigate the scene of a fatal crash on Dec. 10, 2020, involving multiple bicyclists and a box truck along U.S. Highway 95 southbound near Searchlight, Nevada.

LAS VEGAS — An Arizona box truck driver who plowed into bicyclists on a stretch of Nevada highway last December, killing five and injuring four, was sentenced Wednesday to a minimum of 16 years in Nevada state prison for driving under the influence of methamphetamine causing death. 

Jordan Alexander Barson, 45, of Kingman, Arizona, apologized Tuesday, during the first day of an emotional two-day sentencing hearing in Las Vegas, asking forgiveness as he spoke by video from the Clark County Detention Center, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. His attorney, Damian Sheets, said Barson did not intend to cause harm.

“Knowing I caused the deaths of five people and severely hurt two others is unbearable most of the time,” Barson told the court. “I want you to know that I’m so truly sorry for what I’ve done. I know you will carry this pain forever, and it breaks my heart that I caused this.

Clark County District Court Judge Bita Yeager on Wednesday acknowledged Barson’s remorse but stuck with the sentence agreed upon when he pleaded guilty in April to two counts of driving under the influence resulting in death.

“You had no business driving,” Yeager told him. 

The judge paused and near tears, spoke the names of the five bicyclists and cited the effect of their deaths had on “mothers, fathers, siblings, spouses, children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

“Their lives are forever affected because of your poor choice,” she said.

Las Vegas residents Erin Michelle Ray, 39, Gerrard Suarez Nieva, 41, Michael Todd Murray, 57, Aksoy Ahmet, 48, and Thomas Chamberlin Trauger, 57, were killed.

Bicyclists Jose Vasquez and Jerome Ducrocq were seriously injured.

The judge also ordered Barson to pay nearly $60,000 in restitution to victims.

Barson’s plea deal avoided trial on 14 felony charges that could have kept him behind bars for the rest of his life if he was convicted.

Prosecutors said blood tests showed he had nine times the amount of methamphetamine in his system that would indicate impairment.

Barson, a commercial truck driver, wept after the Dec. 10 crash on U.S. 95 between Boulder City and Searchlight. 

He told investigators he fell asleep at the wheel while driving his regular work route between Las Vegas, the Colorado River town of Bullhead City, Arizona, and Kingman.

The flat-faced truck plowed into bicyclists trailing a Subaru Outback support vehicle shielding them from headwind as a group of about 20 cyclists made an annual 130-mile ride from Las Vegas through scenic desert in Nevada and California. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-traffic/2021/06/10/arizona-driver-gets-16-years-crash-killed-5-bicyclists/7638157002/

Burnley footballer Ashley Barnes fined £13k for drink-driving

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes

Premier League striker Ashley Barnes has been fined £13,000 after admitting drink-driving.

The 31-year-old was pulled over at 03:00 BST on 11 May on Balmoral Way, Wilmslow, while driving a black Mercedes V Class hours after Burnley FC secured their top-flight status.

He pleaded guilty to the offence at Stockport Magistrates’ Court and was also banned from driving for 12 months.

Burnley FC declined to comment further on the incident.

A spokesman previously said the matter would be treated “with the upmost seriousness” and Barnes would be “subject to internal disciplinary procedures as a result”.

The footballer, who lives in Wilmslow, was arrested hours after Burnley secured another season in the Premier League on 10 May, after beating Fulham 2-0.

Barnes came on as an 86th minute substitute in the victory at Craven Cottage.

During the hearing, Barnes was offered the chance to reduce his driving ban by three months by taking a drink-driving course.

His defence solicitor said he had some beer on the team coach on the way back from London before making the decision to drive the short distance home rather than getting a taxi.ADVERTISEMENT

“The defendant feels a sense of shame and the effect this will have upon work and family,” the court was told. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-lancashire-57467787

Browns staffer Callie Brownson pleads guilty to operating a vehicle under the influence

Browns chief of staff Callie Brownson has pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle under the influence in an agreement that will allow her to avoid jail time.

Brownson entered the guilty plea on Tuesday, the same day news broke that she had been arrested on May 27.

According to Cleveland.com, Brownson had two other charges dismissed: one for speeding and one for a blood-alcohol level above .17. Brownson paid $780 in court costs and fines, and accrued six points on her drivers license, which has been suspended. She will not go to jail.

Brownson was pulled over for driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone at 12:27 a.m. Her blood-alcohol content was .2150, nearly three times the legal limit.

The Browns say they “will take the appropriate disciplinary actions.” Brownson could also face league discipline.

Brownson coached the Browns’ tight ends in one game last year and their wide receivers in another game after other assistant coaches had to miss the games because of COVID-19. That made her the first woman to serve as a primary position coach in an NFL game. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/06/09/browns-staffer-callie-brownson-pleads-guilty-to-operating-a-vehicle-under-the-influenc
