Billy Lane Plea Deal Reaches An Impasse

billylaneplea1Billy Lane’s DUI manslaughter case went again before a Brevard County, FL  circuit judge this morning at 9 am. Attorneys were expected to notify the court of their progress on plea negotiations. It was expected that Billy Lane would enter a plea deal this morning. But Billy’s attorney Eisenmenger stated again that he disagrees with the State Prosecutor written interpretations of their verbal negotiations. So, legal wrangling is continuing around this plea deal. A June 9 pretrial conference has been set by the judge, and if no plea deal would be reached by then, Lane’s trial will get under way June 15. Billy Lane was no present at this Court hearing.

    Whatever the responsibilities, it is absolutely normal that Billy Lane through his lawyers tries to negotiate the best deal for himself. All readers here would do the same. And those who pretend the opposite are a bunch of hypocrits. And to answer a comment I saw on a previous post, the Morelock family probably does not seek revenge. Don’t forget that they have already been largely financially compensated by Dodge. There is nothing to win for them to wish Billy the harshest punition. For what purpose?

    Jim got it right.

    This does not look good for Mr Lane. Surely a plea deal would have gotten him less time spent. As for Jims comment it is true that the Morelock family has been paid by Dodge but how much is your son,brother or father worth. If it was my family member I would want him to wrought in hell. But thats just me, maybe they are happy to have cashed in on his death. Or maybe they are just waiting for there day in court. Either way it won’t bring the dead back. Mr. Lane has ruined his life no matter how this turns out.
    What a waste.

    I guess I am a hypocrit then because I don’t have the money for a really good lawyer like he has so I would already be doing time three years ago . Any one , if you have money you pay off the judge and the fine and go drinking again . What is a life compaired to money ? There are only rules if you are broke or poor .

    Here’s some straight scoop on the alcohol “swoop” nobody ever told you. I learned it from a wealthy customer (investor, attorney, and all-around rake) in Rancho Sante Fe who lost his only son to booze and whiff. (Customers will talk to their plumber’s like they would a bartender.)
    What he said the doctors told him was this:
    People’s systems process alcohol in two ways – the alcohol is processed as sugar (happy drunks) or the alcohol becomes anhydrous (mean drunks).
    What I can add to that is: Everybody wants to have super-powers like Uri Geller (we all would like to bend spoons with our mind-force). Most of us are unable to do that. The second best thing is to be able to control people.
    “Sugar drunks” don’t have as bad (or any hangovers) like the “anhydrous” people. It doesn’t take too long for the sugar people to realize that they can drink the anhydrous people under the table. The next morning the sugar people are ready to go, the anhydrous people are still sick. The anhydrous people usually get killed or die quicker than the sugar people.

    Synopsis: They should “molasses and feather” the entire Coors® family and march them through the streets of Golden, Colorado. I don’t care how much money Coors® has given to charity, or how legal alcohol is. Everybody thinks alcohol affects everybody in the same way and it’s not so. There should be wide-spread public education on what alcohol does to people systems. And don’t give me any b.s. about how Jesus and his buddies drank wine everyday all day long and did okay. Alcohol is the same chemical composite today that it was 2,000 yrs. ago. You couldn’t have had people staggering around tripping over their sandals 24/7.
    Juicers stink. Alcohol ends up getting the sugar people too eventually and lays waste to fine mechanics.
